Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; nucleic acid binding activity; and translation regulator activity. Involved in positive regulation of cell population proliferation and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to the cytosol; endoplasmic reticulum; and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myotonic dystrophy type 2. Orthologous to human CNBP (CCHC-type zinc finger nucleic acid binding protein).
