Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic digit morphogenesis; regulation of neurogenesis; and skeletal system morphogenesis. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Feingold syndrome. Orthologous to human MYCN (MYCN proto-oncogene, bHLH transcription factor).
