Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits E-box binding activity; chromatin binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in circadian regulation of gene expression; histone H4-R3 methylation; and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytoplasm and histone methyltransferase complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; retina nuclear layer; and somite. Orthologous to human PRMT5 (protein arginine methyltransferase 5).
