From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a subunit of the tetrameric nuclear activating signal cointegrator 1 (ASC-1) complex, which associates with transcriptional coactivators, nuclear receptors and basal transcription factors to facilitate nuclear receptors-mediated transcription. This protein is localized in the nucleus and contains an E1A-type zinc finger domain, which mediates interaction with transcriptional coactivators and ligand-bound nuclear receptors, such as thyroid hormone receptor and retinoid X receptor alpha, but not glucocorticoid receptor. Mutations in this gene are associated with spinal muscular atrophy with congenital bone fractures-1 (SMABF1). [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
Transcription coactivator which associates with nuclear receptors, transcriptional coactivators including EP300, CREBBP and NCOA1, and basal transcription factors like TBP and TFIIA to facilitate nuclear receptors-mediated transcription. May thereby play an important role in establishing distinct coactivator complexes under different cellular conditions. Plays a role in thyroid hormone receptor and estrogen receptor transactivation (PubMed:10454579, PubMed:25219498). Also involved in androgen receptor transactivation (By similarity). Plays a pivotal role in the transactivation of NF-kappa-B, SRF and AP1. Acts as a mediator of transrepression between nuclear receptor and either AP1 or NF-kappa-B (PubMed:12077347). May play a role in the development of neuromuscular junction (PubMed:26924529). May play a role in late myogenic differentiation.

- Muscular dystrophy, congenital, davignon-chauveau type
- Spinal muscular atrophy with congenital bone fractures 1
Muscular dystrophy, congenital, Davignon-Chauveau type (MDCDC): An autosomal recessive, severe congenital muscular dystrophy characterized by neonatal onset of muscle weakness predominantly involving axial muscles, life-threatening respiratory failure, skin abnormalities and joint hyperlaxity without contractures. Muscle biopsies show multi-minicores, caps and dystrophic lesions. [MIM:617066]
Spinal muscular atrophy with congenital bone fractures 1 (SMABF1): An autosomal recessive neuromuscular disorder characterized by prenatal-onset spinal muscular atrophy, multiple congenital contractures consistent with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, respiratory distress, and congenital bone fractures.
