Sequence of this protein is as follows: MATAASNHYS LLTSSASIVH AEPPGGMQQG AGGYREAQSL VQGDYGALQS NGHPLSHAHQ WITALSH
This gene encodes a member of the POU-III class of neural transcription factors. The encoded protein is involved in neuronal differentiation and enhances the activation of corticotropin-releasing hormone regulated genes. Overexpression of this protein is associated with an increase in the proliferation of melanoma cells.
