Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits histone binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of single stranded viral RNA replication via double stranded DNA intermediate and positive regulation of methylation-dependent chromatin silencing. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; heterochromatin; and nuclear matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2Z. Orthologous to human MORC2 (MORC family CW-type zinc finger 2).
