Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have chromatin binding activity and histone binding activity. Predicted to be involved in chromosome separation; meiotic chromosome condensation; and mitotic chromosome condensation. Localizes to the condensin complex and pronucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the cytoplasm and nuclear chromosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary autosomal recessive microcephaly. Orthologous to human NCAPD2 (non-SMC condensin I complex subunit D2).
