Transcription factor that acts synergistically with SOX11 and SOX4. Plays a role in neuronal development. Is implicated in an enhancer activity at the embryonic met- mesencephalic junction; the enhancer element contains the octamer motif (5'-ATTTGCAT-3'). Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class- 3 subfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Biological Process: central nervous system development; negative regulation of apoptosis; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; positive regulation of cell proliferation; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent
