Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of mesonephros development; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; nervous system; sensory organ; and trunk dermomyotome. Orthologous to human SIX4 (SIX homeobox 4).
