-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Homeobox protein aristaless-like 4; AltName: Full=ALX-4;
FUNCTION: Transcription factor involved in skull and limb development.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in osteoblasts. Not expressed in brain, heart, intestine, kidney, liver, muscle, spleen and testis.
DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: Expressed from E8.25 and confined to mesenchymal cells throughout the embryo development. Expression is seen at several sites including craniofacial region, first branchial arch and anterior aspect of the limb bud.
DISEASE: Note=Defects in Alx4 are the cause of Strong luxoid (lst) phenotype. At heterozygosity lst is characterized by preaxial abnormalities of the hindfeet and, very rarely, of the forefeet. Homozygotes show preaxial polydactyly of all four limbs, reductions and duplications of the radius, absence of the tibia, craniofacial defects, reduction of the pubis, and dorsal alopecia.
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.
