Predicted to have tRNA (cytosine-5-)-methyltransferase activity and tRNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including hair follicle maturation; meiotic cell cycle checkpoint; and spermatid development. Localizes to the chromatoid body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability. Orthologous to human NSUN2 (NOP2/Sun RNA methyltransferase 2).
