Gene: Foxn4 (forkhead box N4) Mus musculus
Symbol: Foxn4
Name: forkhead box N4
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity; chromatin binding activity; and cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in neural retina development; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and ventral spinal cord interneuron fate commitment. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; metanephros; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human FOXN4 (forkhead box N4); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol; bisphenol F.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
