Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; neuron development; and neuron fate specification. Located in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; genitourinary system; nervous system; and olfactory epithelium. Used to study autosomal dominant intellectual developmental disorder 39. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant intellectual developmental disorder 39. Orthologous to human MYT1L (myelin transcription factor 1 like).
