Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including neurogenesis; positive regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the nuclear transcription factor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SOX5 (SRY-box transcription factor 5).
