Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have GTPase activity and translation elongation factor activity. Predicted to be involved in GTP metabolic process; positive regulation of mRNA catabolic process; and translational elongation. Predicted to localize to cytoplasmic exosome (RNase complex) and cytosol. Is expressed in cerebral cortex subventricular zone and cerebral cortex ventricular layer. Orthologous to human GTPBP1 (GTP binding protein 1).
