Acts as a transcriptional activator. May play a role during embryogenesis. Binds to the DNA sequence 5'-GAACCACCCA-3' which is part of the TRE-2S regulatory element that augments the Tax-dependent enhancer of human T-cell leukemia virus type 1. Implicated in the transduction of SHH signal. Interaction with ZIC. Belongs to the GLI C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. 5 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
