Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and microtubule binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cell surface receptor signaling pathway involved in cell-cell signaling; and regionalization. Localizes to the axoneme and nucleus. Colocalizes with the ciliary tip. Orthologous to human GLI1 (GLI family zinc finger 1).
