Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including protein deacetylase activity; protein kinase binding activity; and transcription corepressor activity. Predicted to contribute to transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including osteoblast development; regulation of muscle system process; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including actomyosin; cytosol; and neuromuscular junction. Is expressed in alimentary system; early embryo; ganglia; hand; and vibrissa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ataxia telangiectasia; chromosome 2q37 deletion syndrome; eating disorder; and retinal degeneration. Orthologous to human HDAC4 (histone deacetylase 4).
