Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Contributes to RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including central nervous system development; embryonic skeletal system morphogenesis; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; central nervous system; embryo ectoderm; embryo mesenchyme; and gut. Orthologous to human HOXB1 (homeobox B1).
