MORC3 Nuclear factor which forms MORC3-NBs (nuclear bodies) via an ATP-dependent mechanism. Sumoylated MORC3-NBs can also associate with PML-NBs. Recruits TP53 and SP100 to PML-NBs, thus regulating TP53 activity. Binds RNA in vitro. May be required for influenza A transcription during viral infection. Expressed in heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, brain, pancreas, lung, liver, but not kidney. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
