Gene: MSX1 (msh homeobox 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MSX1
Name: msh homeobox 1
Description: Exhibits p53 binding activity and sequence-specific double-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic nail plate morphogenesis; face morphogenesis; and protein stabilization. Localizes to nucleoplasm. Implicated in cleft lip; cleft palate; orofacial cleft 5; tooth and nail syndrome; and tooth disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
