Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits DNA binding activity, bending and DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in male gonad development; male sex determination; and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early conceptus; and genitourinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in 46,XX sex reversal 1; 46,XY sex reversal; and 46,XY sex reversal 1. Orthologous to human SRY (sex determining region Y).
