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 cell aging and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to the histone deacetylase complex; mitochondrion; and nuclear speck. Is expressed in genitourinary system; paraxial mesenchyme; and tail. Orthologous to human ZNF217 (zinc finger protein 217).
