Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity; RNA binding activity; and promoter-specific chromatin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K27 specific). Involved in cellular protein modification process; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Localizes to the ESC/E(Z) complex; protein-DNA complex; and sex chromatin. Orthologous to human SUZ12 (SUZ12 polycomb repressive complex 2 subunit).
