Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have chromatin binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of G2/M transition of mitotic cell cycle and negative regulation of mitotic metaphase/anaphase transition. Localizes to the chromatin; cohesin complex; and condensed nuclear chromosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Cornelia de Lange syndrome 4. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human RAD21 (RAD21 cohesin complex component).
