Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; placenta development; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the transcription factor complex. Used to study hypopituitarism. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in panhypopituitarism. Orthologous to human LHX3 (LIM homeobox 3).
