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 ovarian follicle development and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in premature ovarian failure. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; heart; liver; and skeletal muscle. Orthologous to human NOBOX (NOBOX oogenesis homeobox).
