Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and activating transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including mitochondrion distribution; positive regulation of glucose import; and ventricular cardiac myofibril assembly. Localizes to the nuclear chromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MEF2A (myocyte enhancer factor 2A).
