The protein encoded by this gene is a DNA-binding leucine zipper-containing transcription factor that acts as a homodimer or as a heterodimer. Depending on the binding site and binding partner the encoded protein can be a transcriptional activator or repressor. This protein plays a role in the regulation of several cellular processes including embryonic lens fiber cell development increased T-cell susceptibility to apoptosis and chondrocyte terminal differentiation. Defects in this gene are a cause of juvenile-onset pulverulent cataract as well as congenital cerulean cataract 4 (CCA4). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Jan 2010]
