Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and protein heterooligomerization. Predicted to localize to the nucleoplasm and protein-containing complex. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; genitourinary system; gut; integumental system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human IKZF5 (IKAROS family zinc finger 5).
