Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Enables DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of myeloid cell differentiation and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic forelimb morphogenesis; and regionalization. Located in cytoplasm and nucleus. Part of transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; respiratory system; and skeleton. Orthologous to human HOXA9 (homeobox A9).
