Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including T-helper 1 cell lineage commitment; mammary gland development; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nuclear chromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lipoid nephrosis; prostate carcinoma; and urinary schistosomiasis. Orthologous to human STAT6 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 6).
