Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including lacrimal gland development; nervous system development; and neural crest cell migration. Localizes to the extrinsic component of mitochondrial outer membrane and nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the chromatin. Used to study Kallmann syndrome; PCWH syndrome; and Waardenburg syndrome type 4C. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kallmann syndrome; PCWH syndrome; Waardenburg syndrome type 2E; and Waardenburg syndrome type 4C. Orthologous to human SOX10 (SRY-box 10).
