Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Barrett's esophagus; esophagus adenocarcinoma; intellectual disability-severe speech delay-mild dysmorphism syndrome; peritonitis; and schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; branchial arch; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and musculoskeletal system. Orthologous to human FOXP1 (forkhead box P1).
