Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of lipid transport and negative regulation of reactive oxygen species biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to nuclear speck. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; genitourinary system; gut gland; and neural retina. Orthologous to human HBP1 (HMG-box transcription factor 1).
