Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits nuclear receptor activity; protein heterodimerization activity; and sequence-specific double-stranded DNA binding 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 the cytoplasm; nucleus; and transcription factor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human ARNT (aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator).
