Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits E-box binding activity and protein heterodimerization activity. Predicted to contribute to transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of neuron differentiation and positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; central nervous system; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in craniosynostosis. Orthologous to human TCF12 (transcription factor 12).
