Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits flavin adenine dinucleotide binding activity; histone demethylase activity (H3-K4 specific); and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including DNA methylation involved in gamete generation; histone H3-K4 demethylation; and regulation of gene expression by genetic imprinting. Localizes to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human KDM1B (lysine demethylase 1B).
