Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; and RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of DNA-templated transcription; negative regulation of transposon integration; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to be located in nucleoplasm. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Is expressed in testis and thyroid gland. Orthologous to several human genes including ZNF493 (zinc finger protein 493); ZNF595 (zinc finger protein 595); and ZNF681 (zinc finger protein 681).
