Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits repressing transcription factor binding activity and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in several processes, including determination of adult lifespan; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of skeletal muscle fiber development. Localizes to the histone methyltransferase complex. Orthologous to human HDAC9 (histone deacetylase 9).
