Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.0.0)
Enables RNA polymerase II-specific DNA-binding transcription factor binding activity and transcription regulator inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod; and regulation of gene expression. Acts upstream of with a negative effect on regulation of neural precursor cell proliferation and regulation of neuron differentiation. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of cell differentiation; and positive regulation of cell differentiation. Located in cytoplasm; euchromatin; and nucleus. Part of protein-containing complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; sensory organ; and urinary system. Orthologous to human ID2 (inhibitor of DNA binding 2).
