Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity and miRNA binding activity. Involved in miRNA metabolic process; positive regulation of NIK/NF-kappaB signaling; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the RISC complex; cytoplasm; and nucleus. Orthologous to human AGO1 (argonaute RISC component 1).
