hlh-1 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Legacy GBrowse]
Is an ortholog of several human genes including MYF5 (myogenic factor 5); MYF6 (myogenic factor 6); and MYOD1 (myogenic differentiation 1). Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Is involved in several processes, including positive regulation of mesodermal cell fate specification; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including C lineage cell; D lineage cell; I4 neuron; MSaaaapa; and body wall muscle cell.
