Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; HMG box domain binding activity; and RNA polymerase II transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Acts upstream of or within negative regulation of DNA-templated transcription. Located in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and musculoskeletal system. Orthologous to human HIVEP1 (HIVEP zinc finger 1).
