Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits nucleic acid binding activity and promoter-specific chromatin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K27 specific). Involved in several processes, including histone modification; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and oligodendrocyte differentiation. Localizes to nucleus; protein-DNA complex; and ribonucleoprotein complex. Is expressed in several structures, including bone; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and neural retina. Orthologous to human SUZ12 (SUZ12 polycomb repressive complex 2 subunit).
