Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of ATF6-mediated unfolded protein response and positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress. Localizes to the extracellular space. Orthologous to human ATF6B (activating transcription factor 6 beta).
