Plays an essential role in normal development and survival. Involved in regulation of the expansion or survival of lymphoid cells. Required for de novo or maintenance DNA methylation. May control silencing of the imprinted CDKN1C gene through DNA methylation. May play a role in formation and organization of heterochromatin, implying a functional role in the regulation of transcription and mitosis. By concanavalin-A in peripheral blood leukocytes. Highly expressed in proliferative tissues such as adult thymus and testis, and expressed at lower levels in uterus, small intestine, colon, and peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Also expressed in neoplastic cell lines including those derived from myeloid and lymphoid leukemias. Belongs to the SNF2/RAD54 helicase family. 9 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
