Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA binding activity. Involved in regulation of alternative mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Localizes to the pronucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hepatocellular carcinoma; lung cancer; and systemic scleroderma. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; sensory organ; tail unsegmented mesenchyme; and tooth. Orthologous to human HNRNPL (heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein L).
