Transcription factor that binds preferentially to the recognition sequence which consists of two distinct half-sites, ('GCAT') and ('TAAT'), separated by a nonconserved spacer region of 0, 2, or 3 nucleotides. Positively regulates the genes under the control of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and CRH II promoters. Interacts with PQBP1. Expressed specifically in the neuroectodermal cell lineage. Belongs to the POU transcription factor family. Class- 3 subfamily. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative initiation.
