Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to have several functions, including DNA-dependent ATPase activity; chromatin binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in aortic smooth muscle cell differentiation; hematopoietic stem cell homeostasis; and negative regulation of cell population proliferation. Localizes to nBAF complex and npBAF complex. Is expressed in several structures, including cerebral cortex; early conceptus; genitourinary system; heart; and vitelline artery. Orthologous to human SMARCA2 (SWI/SNF related, matrix associated, actin dependent regulator of chromatin, subfamily a, member 2).
