Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits chromatin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to DNA-directed 5'-3' RNA polymerase activity. Predicted to be involved in innate immune response and positive regulation of interferon-beta production. Predicted to localize to RNA polymerase III complex and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypomyelinating leukodystrophy 7 with or without oligodontia and-or hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and progeria. Orthologous to human POLR3A (RNA polymerase III subunit A).
