Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits euchromatin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to histone methyltransferase activity (H3-K4 specific). Involved in positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the MLL1 complex and nuclear euchromatin. Orthologous to human ASH2L (ASH2 like, histone lysine methyltransferase complex subunit).
