Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; E-box binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of neural retina development; and retinoic acid receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to the transcription factor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic agenesis. Orthologous to human PTF1A (pancreas associated transcription factor 1a).
