FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a conserved protein that is similar to DNA-binding proteins, such as major centromere autoantigen B (CENPB). Inactivation of the related gene in mice resulted in epileptic seizures. Childhood Absence Epilepsy (CAE) has been mapped to the same chromosomal location (8q24.3) as this gene. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]
PHENOTYPE: Heterozygous mutants show whole body jerks, clonic seizures and epileptic brain activity. Homozygous mutants show elevated seizure susceptibility, impaired postnatal growth, reduced life span, male sterility and impaired female fertility. [provided by MGI curators]
