Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; identical protein binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to nucleus and transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; brain; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and integumental system. Used to study acute myeloid leukemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute myeloid leukemia. Orthologous to human CEBPA (CCAAT enhancer binding protein alpha).
