Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and activating transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including chromatin remodeling; hemopoiesis; and liver development. Predicted to localize to the nuclear chromatin and nucleoplasm. Used to study beta thalassemia and hereditary spherocytosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital dyserythropoietic anemia. Orthologous to human KLF1 (Kruppel like factor 1).
