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.
Molecular Function: DNA binding transcription factor activity; sequence-specific DNA binding
Biological Process: central nervous system development; cerebral cortex radially oriented cell migration; chemical homeostasis; excretion; forebrain ventricular zone progenitor cell division; negative regulation of apoptosis; negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent; positive regulation of cell proliferation; positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter; positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; transcription, DNA-dependent
