Involved in transcriptional activation and repression of select genes by chromatin remodeling (alteration of DNA-nucleosome topology). Required for the stability of the SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complex SWI/SNF-B (PBAF). May be involved in targeting the complex to different genes. May be involved in regulating transcriptional activation of cardiac genes.
Synonyms: ARID domain-containing protein 2, BRG1-associated factor 200, BAF200, Zinc finger protein with activation potential, Zipzap/p200
Gene name: ARID2
