Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to be involved in maturation of SSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA) and ribosomal small subunit assembly. Predicted to localize to the Pwp2p-containing subcomplex of 90S preribosome and small-subunit processome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; heart; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PWP2 (PWP2 small subunit processome component).
