Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and transcription factor binding activity. Contributes to DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular protein modification process; cellular response to lipid; and myotube differentiation. Localizes to the myofibril; nuclear chromatin; and transcription factor complex. Orthologous to human MYOD1 (myogenic differentiation 1).
