Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II proximal promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of epidermal growth factor-activated receptor activity and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the nucleoplasm and plasma membrane. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; gut epithelium; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human ZGPAT (zinc finger CCCH-type and G-patch domain containing).
