Summary
Enables DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and sensory organ development. Located in cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; and lower leg. Used to study cataract 21 multiple types and multiple myeloma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ayme-Gripp syndrome; cataract; and cataract 21 multiple types. Orthologous to human MAF (MAF bZIP transcription factor). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

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.
