Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; nucleic acid binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; nervous system development; and positive regulation of cell communication. Localizes to the cytoplasm and nuclear transcription factor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Coffin-Siris syndrome and urinary bladder cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hindlimb long bone; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SOX4 (SRY-box transcription factor 4).
