Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Contributes to transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of stem cell proliferation; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of stem cell population maintenance. Localizes to the nucleus. Orthologous to human NFYA (nuclear transcription factor Y subunit alpha).
