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 dentate gyrus development and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; integumental system; limb; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human NEUROD6 (neuronal differentiation 6).
