Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus. Used to study lipodystrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; limb mesenchyme; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human EBF1 (EBF transcription factor 1).
