Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including chromatin DNA binding activity; histone demethylase activity (H3-K9 specific); and transcription coregulator activity. Predicted to be involved in histone H3-K9 demethylation; regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and response to cisplatin. Predicted to localize to chromatin and histone deacetylase complex. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; oocyte; and retina nuclear layer. Orthologous to human KDM3B (lysine demethylase 3B).
