NCBI Gene Info:
Enables several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II-specific DNA-binding transcription factor binding activity; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cellular response to amino acid starvation; protein localization to nuclear periphery; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Located in nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pulmonary tuberculosis. Orthologous to human JUN (Jun proto-oncogene, AP-1 transcription factor subunit).
