Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; learning or memory; and modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. Orthologous to human NPAS4 (neuronal PAS domain protein 4).
