Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in branching involved in ureteric bud morphogenesis and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; limb mesenchyme; liver; lung; and visual system. Orthologous to human GZF1 (GDNF inducible zinc finger protein 1).
