Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including eating behavior; mammary gland involution; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytoplasm; nucleus; and transcription factor complex. Orthologous to human BSX (brain specific homeobox).
