Protein functionTranscription regulator of hematopoietic cell differentiation, PubMed:17934067. Binds gamma-satellite DNA, PubMed:17135265, PubMed:19141594. Plays a role in the development of lymphocytes, B- and T-cells. Binds and activates the enhancer, delta-A element of the CD3-delta gene. Repressor of the TDT, fikzfterminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase gene during thymocyte differentiation. Regulates transcription through association with both HDAC-dependent and HDAC-independent complexes. Targets the 2 chromatin-remodeling complexes, NuRD and BAF, SWI/SNF, in a single complex, PYR complex, to the beta-globin locus in adult erythrocytes. Increases normal apoptosis in adult erythroid cells. Confers early temporal competence to retinal progenitor cells, RPCs, By similarity. Function is isoform-specific and is modulated by dominant-negative inactive isoforms, PubMed:17135265, PubMed:17934067. {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q03267, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10204490, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17135265, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17934067, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19141594}.

Note=In resting lymphocytes, distributed diffusely throughout the nucleus. Localizes to pericentromeric heterochromatin in proliferating cells. This localization requires DNA binding which is regulated by phosphorylation / dephosphorylation events. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17135265, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22106042}.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform Ik2: Nucleus. Note=In resting lymphocytes, distributed diffusely throughout the nucleus. Localizes to pericentromeric heterochromatin in proliferating cells.
