Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits bHLH transcription factor binding activity; protein dimerization activity; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription, DNA-templated and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nuclear body and protein-containing complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; and retina. Orthologous to human IKZF4 (IKAROS family zinc finger 4).
