Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity, bending; DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in male gonad development; male sex determination; and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nuclear transcription factor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in 46 XY gonadal dysgenesis. Orthologous to human SRY (sex determining region Y).
