Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; aryl hydrocarbon receptor binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in central nervous system development; in utero embryonic development; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ARNT2 (aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator 2).
