Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II and regulation of DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Localizes to granular component. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; gut; and skeletal muscle tissue. Orthologous to human CARF (calcium responsive transcription factor).
