IRX6 has several biochemical functions, for example, sequence-specific DNA binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by IRX6 itself. We selected most functions IRX6 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with IRX6. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
