Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity; and mitogen-activated protein kinase p38 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; branching involved in lymph vessel morphogenesis; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytoplasm; nucleus; and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; early conceptus; eye; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Orthologous to human NFATC1 (nuclear factor of activated T cells 1).
