Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; identical protein binding activity; and ubiquitin-like protein ligase binding activity. Involved in type I interferon signaling pathway. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary immunodeficiency disease. Orthologous to human STAT2 (signal transducer and activator of transcription 2).
