Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including DNA polymerase binding activity; chromatin binding activity; and nucleic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and vasculature development. Localizes to chromatin. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study breast cancer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Coffin-Siris syndrome 4; lung non-small cell carcinoma; and rhabdoid cancer. Orthologous to human SMARCA4 (SWI/SNF related, matrix associated, actin dependent regulator of chromatin, subfamily a, member 4).
