    Enables DNA-binding transcription repressor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific and RNA polymerase II intronic transcription regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Located in nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; genitourinary system; liver; muscle tissue; and spleen. Orthologous to human ZC3H8 (zinc finger CCCH-type containing 8).

    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.
