Predicted to enable transcription coactivator activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including gonadotropin secretion; positive regulation of transcription regulatory region DNA binding activity; and regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process. Located in cytosol. Orthologous to human NIBAN2 (niban apoptosis regulator 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
Broad expression in lung adult (RPKM 97.1), colon adult (RPKM 52.5) and 24 other tissues See more

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
