Gene: VAX1 (ventral anterior homeobox 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VAX1
Name: ventral anterior homeobox 1
Description: Exhibits sequence-specific double-stranded DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in central nervous system development; neuron differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nuclear chromatin. Implicated in syndromic microphthalmia 11.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: MCOPS11; MGC126743; MGC126745
