Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; protein homodimerization activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the nucleus and transcription factor complex. 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).
