Kruppel-like transcription factor 5

Gene Summary

Enables DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; MRF binding activity; and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor; regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and skeletal muscle tissue regeneration. Located in nucleus. Part of transcription regulator complex. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; gut; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human KLF5 (Kruppel like factor 5). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
