Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits mRNA binding activity and poly(A)-specific ribonuclease activity. Involved in several processes, including cytoplasmic mRNA processing body assembly; negative regulation of osteoblast differentiation; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to the P-body; nucleus; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Orthologous to human NOCT (nocturnin).
