Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II distal enhancer sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including limb morphogenesis; male germ-line stem cell asymmetric division; and regulation of hemopoiesis. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute promyelocytic leukemia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; central nervous system; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ZBTB16 (zinc finger and BTB domain containing 16).
