Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; branching involved in blood vessel morphogenesis; and cellular response to metal ion. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleus. Orthologous to human NFATC3 (nuclear factor of activated T cells 3).
