Summary
Enables DNA-binding transcription factor activity; enzyme binding activity; and transcription cis-regulatory region binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to amino acid starvation; lysosome localization; and positive regulation of autophagy. Located in cytosol; lysosomal membrane; and nucleoplasm. [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.
