From NCBI Gene:

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]

From UniProt:

May bind DNA.

Cytogenetic Location: 8q24.3, which is the long (q) arm of chromosome 8 at position 24.3
