LHX6 (human)

LHX6 Probable transcription factor required for the expression of a subset of genes involved in interneurons migration and development. Functions in the specification of cortical interneuron subtypes and in the migration of GABAergic interneuron precursors from the subpallium to the cerebral cortex. 5 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: DNA binding protein
Cellular Component: nucleus
Molecular Function: zinc ion binding; sequence-specific DNA binding; transcription factor activity
Biological Process: transcription, DNA-dependent; cerebral cortex GABAergic interneuron migration; forebrain neuron development; cerebral cortex tangential migration; cell maturation; cerebral cortex radially oriented cell migration; forebrain neuron fate commitment
Reference #:  Q9UPM6 (UniProtKB)
