Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.2.0)
Predicted to enable histone binding activity. Predicted to be involved in meiotic chromosome condensation and mitotic chromosome condensation. Predicted to act upstream of or within cell division and chromosome condensation. Located in condensed chromosome and pronucleus. Part of condensin complex. Is expressed in central nervous system; retina outer nuclear layer; and salivary gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary autosomal recessive microcephaly. Orthologous to human NCAPD2 (non-SMC condensin I complex subunit D2).
