Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including RNA polymerase II repressing transcription factor binding activity; chromatin binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Predicted to contribute to histone deacetylase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucose stimulus; generation of neurons; and positive regulation of G2/M transition of mitotic cell cycle. Localizes to kinetochore; nucleus; and transcription repressor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in chromosome 15q24 deletion syndrome. Orthologous to human SIN3A (SIN3 transcription regulator family member A).
