Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including diaphragm development; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus. Localizes to the nucleus. Orthologous to human MYT1 (myelin transcription factor 1).
