Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of neuron differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; embryo mesenchyme; inner ear; nervous system; and urinary system. Orthologous to human HEYL (hes related family bHLH transcription factor with YRPW motif like).
