From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the forkhead family of transcription factors. Similar genes in zebrafish and mouse have been shown to regulate the transcription of genes that control the production of motile cilia. The mouse ortholog also functions in the determination of left-right asymmetry. Polymorphisms in this gene are associated with systemic lupus erythematosus and allergic rhinitis.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
Transcription factor specifically required for the formation of motile cilia (PubMed:31630787). Acts by activating transcription of genes that mediate assembly of motile cilia, such as CFAP157. Binds the DNA consensus sequences 5'-HWDTGTTTGTTTA-3' or 5'-KTTTGTTGTTKTW-3' (where H is not G, W is A or T, D is not C, and K is G or T). Activates the transcription of a variety of ciliary proteins in the developing brain and lung.

- CILIARY DYSKINESIA, PRIMARY, 43
Allergic rhinitis (ALRH): A common disease with complex inheritance characterized by mucosal inflammation caused by allergen exposure. [MIM:607154]
Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 43 (CILD43): A form of primary ciliary dyskinesia, a disorder characterized by abnormalities of motile cilia. Respiratory infections leading to chronic inflammation and bronchiectasis are recurrent, due to defects in the respiratory cilia. Patients with this disorder also develop significant obstructive hydrocephalus. Other more variable features include infertility and about a 50% chance of situs inversus or other left-right asymmetry defects. CILD43 inheritance is autosomal dominant. [MIM:618699]
