Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including hemopoiesis; lens morphogenesis in camera-type eye; and negative regulation of cell differentiation. Localizes to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb bud; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MEIS1 (Meis homeobox 1).
