Summary
Enables DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Acts upstream of or within positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Located in cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; limb; nervous system; and retina. Orthologous to human MAZ (MYC associated zinc finger protein).

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.
