Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; nervous system development; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus. Used to study Weissenbacher-Zweymuller syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 27. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SOX11 (SRY-box transcription factor 11).
