Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including circulatory system development; generation of neurons; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; heart; hindbrain; and sensory organ. Used to study dilated cardiomyopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atrial heart septal defect 4. Orthologous to human TBX20 (T-box transcription factor 20).
