From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the basic helix-loop-helix and PAS domain-containing family of transcription factors. The encoded protein is localized to the nucleus and may regulate genes involved in neurogenesis. Chromosomal abnormalities that affect the coding potential of this gene are associated with schizophrenia and mental retardation. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

May play a broad role in neurogenesis. May control regulatory pathways relevant to schizophrenia and to psychotic illness.
