Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity and DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in several processes, including hemopoiesis; negative regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of lymphocyte activation. Localizes to the nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the replication fork. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in B-cell lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Orthologous to human BCL6 (BCL6 transcription repressor).
