Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits telomerase RNA binding activity; telomerase activity; and transcription coactivator binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of glucose import; positive regulation of hair cycle; and positive regulation of stem cell proliferation. Localizes to the mitochondrion; plasma membrane; and telomerase catalytic core complex. Predicted to colocalize with the PML body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant dyskeratosis congenita 2; familial melanoma; idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; leukemia (multiple); and urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase).
