Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and cis-regulatory region 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 nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; future brain; genitourinary system; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MYT1 (myelin transcription factor 1).
