Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in several processes, including circadian regulation of gene expression; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod; and locomotor rhythm. Localizes to NuRD complex and cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human MTA1 (metastasis associated 1).
