Binds the sequence 5'-ATCAATCAA-3'. Acts as a transcriptional activator of PF4 in complex with MEIS1. Converted into a potent transcriptional activator by the (1;19) translocation. May have a role in steroidogenesis and, subsequently, sexual development and differentiation. Forms a heterodimer with MEIS1 which binds DNA including a cAMP-responsive sequence in CYP17. Also forms heterotrimers with MEIS1 and a number of HOX proteins including HOXA9, HOXD4, HOXD9 and HOXD10. Interacts with PBXIP1. Expressed in all tissues except in cells of the B and T lineage. Belongs to the TALE/PBX homeobox family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
