Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region 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 cytoplasm and nuclear chromatin. Is expressed in several structures, including 2-cell stage embryo; alimentary system; lower urinary tract; male reproductive system; and olfactory epithelium. 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).
