Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including ATP binding activity; ATP hydrolysis activity; and histone octamer slider activity. Predicted to contribute to histone binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of histone modification; rDNA heterochromatin assembly; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor; chromatin remodeling; and positive regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Located in nucleus and pericentric heterochromatin. Part of NoRC complex and chromatin silencing complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SMARCA5 (SWI/SNF related, matrix associated, actin dependent regulator of chromatin, subfamily a, member 5).
