Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including histone deacetylase binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and repressing transcription factor binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the chromosomal region; nuclear lumen; and transcriptional repressor complex. Predicted to colocalize with the PML body. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CBX5 (chromobox 5).
