Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 the nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the kinetochore. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in precursor T-lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia. Is expressed in several structures, including nervous system and neural retina. Orthologous to human NUP98 (nucleoporin 98).
