In vertebrates the genes encoding the class of transcription factors called homeobox genes are found in clusters named A B C and D on four separate chromosomes. Expression of these proteins is spatially and temporally regulated during embryonic development. This gene is part of the A cluster on chromosome 7 and encodes a DNA-binding transcription factor which may regulate gene expression morphogenesis and differentiation. The encoded protein may be involved in the placement of hindbrain segments in the proper location along the anterior-posterior axis during development. Two transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene with only one of the isoforms containing the homeodomain region. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
