Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including regulation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of innate immune response. Predicted to be located in nucleolus and nucleoplasm. Predicted to colocalize with cytosol. Orthologous to human IFI16 (interferon gamma inducible protein 16).
