Binds DNA through the consensus sequence 5'-CAATG-3'. May be involved in transcriptional regulation and may play a role in tooth formation.
In the embryo, expressed in developing craniofacial structures including dental epithelium of maxillary molar tooth organs, tongue epithelium and muscle, and craniofacial bone osteoblasts. In the adult, expressed in mesoderm-derived tissues such as skeletal muscle, heart, kidney and liver. Intermediate expression in spleen, thymus and brain. Low levels in endoderm-derived tissues such as intestine and colon.
Belongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. Contains 5 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
