Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA helicase activity; histone deacetylase binding activity; and nucleic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including G-quadruplex DNA unwinding; positive regulation of cell differentiation; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytosol. Is expressed in telencephalon. Orthologous to human DHX36 (DEAH-box helicase 36).
