Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable H3K9me3 modified histone binding activity; lysine-acetylated histone binding activity; and transcription coregulator activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of myeloid progenitor cell differentiation; nervous system development; and regulation of DNA-templated transcription. Predicted to act upstream of or within apoptotic process and chromatin organization. Located in cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ.
