Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; chordate embryonic development; and positive regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Orthologous to human PAX7 (paired box 7).
