Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA binding activity and splicing factor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Predicted to localize to the U12-type spliceosomal complex; U2-type precatalytic spliceosome; and nucleolus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Nager acrofacial dysostosis. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; heart; liver; and spleen. Orthologous to human SF3B4 (splicing factor 3b subunit 4).
