Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cell morphogenesis; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in malignant glioma. Orthologous to human SOX6 (SRY-box 6).
