Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and mitogen-activated protein kinase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nuclear periphery. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and retina. Orthologous to human ATF7 (activating transcription factor 7).
