    basic FUNCTION
  • embryonic transcriptional regulator
  • involved in kidney development
  • plays a dual role in the establishment of the binocular visual pathways: first, in specification of the ventrotemporal retina, acting upstream of proteins directing the ipsilateral pathway, and second, in the patterning of the developing ventral diencephalon where the optic chiasm forms
  • acts as a transcription repressor in controlling its downstream targets in the retina
  • functions as a conserved determinant of temporal identity, and is required for the specification of the temporal retina
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
  • FOXG1 and FOXD1 are potentially located at the top of the gene cascade for regional specification along the nasotemporal (anteroposterior) axis in the retina
  • a component
    INTERACTION
    DNA binding
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • PIGF is a direct and physiologically relevant transcriptional target of FOXD1
  • possible interaction between FOXD1 and TFAP2A
  • EPHA6 is a FOXD1 downstream effector that sends temporal axons to the rostral colliculus
