Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; germ-line stem cell population maintenance; and trophectodermal cell differentiation. Localizes to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; embryo ectoderm; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human TFAP2C (transcription factor AP-2 gamma).
