Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity; RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in embryonic body morphogenesis and stem cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to the nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; cerebral cortex; genitourinary system; limb; and vertebral axis musculature. Orthologous to human ZNF281 (zinc finger protein 281).
