Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; histone demethylase activity (H3-dimethyl-K4 specific); and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including histone lysine demethylation; negative regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process; and regulation of myeloid cell differentiation. Localizes to the nuclear chromatin. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; future pituitary; inner cell mass; reproductive system; and urinary system. Orthologous to human KDM1A (lysine demethylase 1A).
