Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including DNA binding activity; RNA polymerase II repressing transcription factor binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Involved in G1/S transition of mitotic cell cycle and blastocyst hatching. Predicted to localize to nucleoplasm; site of double-strand break; and transcription repressor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Seckel syndrome 2. Orthologous to human RBBP8 (RB binding protein 8, endonuclease).
