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 cellular response to calcium ion and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human FOSB (FosB proto-oncogene, AP-1 transcription factor subunit).
