Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including lens development in camera-type eye; negative regulation of skeletal muscle satellite cell proliferation; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in branchiootorenal syndrome. Orthologous to human SIX5 (SIX homeobox 5).
