Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA polymerase II distal enhancer 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 the NuRD complex and cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human MTA1 (metastasis associated 1).
