Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity and cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including anoikis; negative regulation of fat cell proliferation; and regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to cytoplasm; nucleus; and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and retina. Orthologous to several human genes including TFDP1 (transcription factor Dp-1).
