Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity involved in apoptotic process; and transcription coregulator activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cellular chemical homeostasis; and inorganic ion homeostasis. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Used to study Char syndrome and angle-closure glaucoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Char syndrome and patent ductus arteriosus. Is expressed in several structures, including genital tubercle; limb; metanephros; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TFAP2B (transcription factor AP-2 beta).
