Description
Enables DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; iridophore differentiation; and nervous system development. Located in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including ectoderm; nervous system; neural crest; neural tube; and pronephros. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in branchiooculofacial syndrome. Orthologous to human TFAP2A (transcription factor AP-2 alpha).
