Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adrenal gland development; gonad development; and regulation of gonad development. Localizes to the RNA polymerase II transcription factor complex. Used to study hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in 46 XY gonadal dysgenesis; Zellweger syndrome; premature ovarian failure; and spermatogenic failure 8. Orthologous to human NR5A1 (nuclear receptor subfamily 5 group A member 1).
