Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including regulation of cell development; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the chromatoid body; nuclear body; and transcription factor complex. Used to study diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; retina; and spinal cord. Orthologous to human ARNTL (aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator like).
