Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryo development; and negative regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to nucleus and transcription repressor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including 1st branchial arch; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SP3 (Sp3 transcription factor).
