Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits chromatin binding activity and histone binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hydroxyurea; male gonad development; and regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to nuclear lumen. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early embryo; genitourinary system; limb; and nervous system. Used to study alpha thalassemia-X-linked intellectual disability syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alpha thalassemia-X-linked intellectual disability syndrome and malignant glioma. Orthologous to human ATRX (ATRX chromatin remodeler).
