Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; chromatin binding activity; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cellular biosynthetic process; positive regulation of growth; and somatotropin secreting cell development. Localizes to the nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the chromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in panhypopituitarism and pituitary gland disease. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; genitourinary system; pituitary gland; and trunk somite. Orthologous to human POU1F1 (POU class 1 homeobox 1).
