Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Contributes to nucleosome binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic morphogenesis; and negative regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the SWI/SNF complex; nBAF complex; and npBAF complex. Used to study Coffin-Siris syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Coffin-Siris syndrome 2 and neuroblastoma. Orthologous to human ARID1A (AT-rich interaction domain 1A).
