Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity; DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and histone acetyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular protein metabolic process; negative regulation of glucocorticoid receptor signaling pathway; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to the chromatoid body; nucleus; and transcription factor complex. Used to study bipolar disorder; diabetes mellitus; and sleep disorder. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; ear; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human CLOCK (clock circadian regulator).
