Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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 condensin complex and pronucleus. Predicted to colocalize with cytoplasm and nuclear chromosome. 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).
