Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chromatin binding activity; sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of fat cell differentiation; and positive regulation of protein deacetylation. Localizes to the histone deacetylase complex and nuclear body. Used to study myelofibrosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteoarthritis. Orthologous to human NCOR2 (nuclear receptor corepressor 2).
