Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of biosynthetic process; and positive regulation of cell differentiation. Localizes to ATF4-CREB1 transcription factor complex and nuclear chromatin. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; limb; maxillary process; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and telencephalon. Orthologous to human CREB1 (cAMP responsive element binding protein 1).
