Predicted to have AF-2 domain binding activity; estrogen receptor binding activity; and nuclear receptor transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including bone trabecula formation; positive regulation of bone resorption; and positive regulation of cellular metabolic process. Predicted to localize to mediator complex. Is expressed in brown fat; central nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human PPARGC1B (PPARG coactivator 1 beta).
