Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including histone demethylase activity (H3-K36 specific); methylated histone binding activity; and peptidase activity, acting on L-amino acid peptides. Involved in circadian regulation of gene expression and protein destabilization. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; early conceptus; genitourinary system; nervous system; and trachea. Orthologous to human KDM8 (lysine demethylase 8).
