Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including nuclear localization sequence binding activity; promoter-specific chromatin binding activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including nucleocytoplasmic transport; positive regulation of mRNA splicing, via spliceosome; and posttranscriptional tethering of RNA polymerase II gene DNA at nuclear periphery. Localizes to nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with kinetochore. Is expressed in several structures, including nervous system and neural retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Orthologous to human NUP98 (nucleoporin 98 and 96 precursor).
