Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in brain development; growth; and post-embryonic development. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute lymphocytic leukemia and adult T-cell leukemia. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; future midbrain; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human TAL2 (TAL bHLH transcription factor 2).
