Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including ATP binding activity; endoribonuclease inhibitor activity; and ribosomal small subunit binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of endoribonuclease activity; ribosomal subunit export from nucleus; and translation. Predicted to localize to cytosol and mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including brain ventricular layer; cranium; medulla oblongata basal plate mantle layer; thymus primordium; and vertebral axis musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in human immunodeficiency virus infectious disease. Orthologous to human ABCE1 (ATP binding cassette subfamily E member 1).
