Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits DNA-dependent ATPase activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA metabolic process; DNA rewinding; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to colocalize with DNA replication factor A complex. Is expressed in genitourinary system. Used to study Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia. Orthologous to human SMARCAL1 (SWI/SNF related, matrix associated, actin dependent regulator of chromatin, subfamily a like 1).
