Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter 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 the cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study dilated cardiomyopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atrial heart septal defect 4. Orthologous to human TBX20 (T-box 20).
