Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity and methylated histone binding activity. Predicted to contribute to nucleosome binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor; regulation of histone H3-K27 methylation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Colocalizes with the ESC/E(Z) complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human MTF2 (metal response element binding transcription factor 2).
