Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits RNA binding activity and protein tyrosine phosphatase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cell fate specification; and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Localizes to cytoplasm; nucleus; and protein-DNA complex. Used to study branchiootorenal syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in branchiootic syndrome; branchiootorenal syndrome; and branchiootorenal syndrome 1. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human EYA1 (EYA transcriptional coactivator and phosphatase 1).
