MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (BHLH) family of transcription factors. It activates transcription by binding to the E box (5'-CANNTG-3'). Dimerization with other BHLH proteins is required for efficient DNA binding. Involved in the determination of the neuronal precursors in the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele or heterozygous for a maternally inherited allele exhibit embryonic lethality during organogenesis associated with abnormal embryogenesis. [provided by MGI curators]
