Enables DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and transcription cis-regulatory region binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of muscle cell differentiation; negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; and regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus. Acts upstream of or within blastocyst hatching. Located in cytoplasm and nucleolus. Is expressed in early conceptus; nervous system; neural retina; and secondary oocyte. Orthologous to human ZBED6 (zinc finger BED-type containing 6).
