Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator 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 formation; nervous system development; and spleen development. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in adult T-cell leukemia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; ear; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human TLX1 (T cell leukemia homeobox 1).
