Summary
The protein encoded by this gene functions as a transcription factor regulator in the transcriptional pathway for human cognition. It is a partner of the alpha subunit of the GA-binding protein transcription factor. Mutations in this gene cause mild autosomal recessive intellectual disability. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2014]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
