Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits androgen receptor binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and histone demethylase activity. Involved in several processes, including blastocyst formation; histone H3-K9 demethylation; and negative regulation of histone H3-K9 trimethylation. Localizes to the pericentric heterochromatin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autistic disorder; esophagus squamous cell carcinoma; head and neck cancer; renal cell carcinoma; and withdrawal disorder. Is expressed in early conceptus; eye; genitourinary system; hippocampus; and rib. Orthologous to human KDM4C (lysine demethylase 4C).
