Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; methyl-CpNpG binding activity; and sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA damage response and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to be located in cytosol and nuclear body. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; connective tissue; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system.
