Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits H3K27me3 modified histone binding activity and histone deacetylase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cerebral cortex neuron differentiation; chromatin organization; and positive regulation of signal transduction by p53 class mediator. Localizes to the NuRD complex and heterochromatin. Predicted to colocalize with the chromatin. Orthologous to human CHD5 (chromodomain helicase DNA binding protein 5).
