Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA damage response, signal transduction by p53 class mediator; defense response to protozoan; and immune system development. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Orthologous to human BATF (basic leucine zipper ATF-like transcription factor).
