Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including DNA binding activity; Krueppel-associated box domain binding activity; and RNA polymerase II transcription corepressor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; histone modification; and regulation of cell development. Localizes to RNA polymerase II transcription repressor complex and chromosome. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; intestine; nervous system; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in stomach cancer. Orthologous to human HDAC2 (histone deacetylase 2).
