Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits chromatin DNA binding activity and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in circadian regulation of gene expression; histone H3-K4 demethylation; and negative regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process. Localizes to nucleus and protein-DNA complex. Is expressed in several structures, including 1st branchial arch; early conceptus; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ankylosing spondylitis. Orthologous to human KDM5A (lysine demethylase 5A).
