Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity and chromatin binding activity. Involved in animal organ development; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and positive regulation of dendrite morphogenesis. Localizes to the cytoplasm; neuron projection; and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CUX1 (cut like homeobox 1).
