Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cellular response to retinoic acid; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Localizes to nucleus and transcription factor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Sveinsson chorioretinal atrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human TEAD1 (TEA domain transcription factor 1).
