Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in embryonic skeletal system development; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of embryonic development. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including anterior naris; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; oral epithelium; and thymus primordium. Orthologous to human DMRT2 (doublesex and mab-3 related transcription factor 2).
