Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in several processes, including embryonic placenta development; positive regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process; and response to hypoxia. Localizes to cytoplasm; nucleus; and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human ARNT (aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator).
