Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable DNA-binding transcription factor activity. Predicted to be involved in iron-sulfur cluster assembly and protein maturation by iron-sulfur cluster transfer. Predicted to act upstream of or within regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm. Predicted to be part of CIA complex and MMXD complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; liver; neural retina; and skin. Orthologous to human CIAO1 (cytosolic iron-sulfur assembly component 1).
