Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Acts upstream of or within cellular response to calcium ion. Predicted to be located in nucleoplasm. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; gut; male reproductive gland or organ; skeleton; and skin. Orthologous to human FOSB (FosB proto-oncogene, AP-1 transcription factor subunit).
