Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including histone H3-K9 demethylation; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and visual perception. Predicted to localize to the nuclear speck. Used to study cataract 5 multiple types. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and cataract 5 multiple types. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; lens; respiratory system; submandibular gland; and urinary system. Orthologous to human HSF4 (heat shock transcription factor 4).
