Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor 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 righting reflex. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; autism spectrum disorder (multiple); communication disorder (multiple); dyslexia; and major depressive disorder. Orthologous to human FOXP2 (forkhead box P2).
