Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor recruiting activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in several processes, including cell dedifferentiation; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and response to retinoic acid. Localizes to the nucleoplasm. Orthologous to several human genes including NANOG (Nanog homeobox).
