Summary
Enables sequence-specific double-stranded DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cell differentiation; regulation of myelination; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Predicted to act upstream of or within several processes, including negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; neurogenesis; and neuromuscular process controlling balance. Predicted to be part of chromatin. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Implicated in spastic ataxia 8. [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

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.
