-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Paired mesoderm homeobox protein 2A; AltName: Full=Aristaless homeobox protein homolog; AltName: Full=PHOX2A homeodomain protein; AltName: Full=Paired-like homeobox 2A;
FUNCTION: May be involved in regulating the specificity of expression of the catecholamine biosynthetic genes. Acts as a transcription activator/factor. Could maintain the noradrenergic phenotype (By similarity).
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (By similarity).
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the paired homeobox family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
