Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including protein deacetylase activity; transcription corepressor activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to contribute to sequence-specific DNA binding activity and transcription regulatory region 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 the actomyosin; cytosol; and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ataxia telangiectasia; eating disorder; and retinal degeneration. Orthologous to human HDAC4 (histone deacetylase 4).
