Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor 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 intracellular signal transduction; negative regulation of nervous system development; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytosol; nucleus; and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human NFATC4 (nuclear factor of activated T cells 4).
