Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have TFIIIC-class transcription factor complex binding activity. Predicted to be involved in RNA polymerase III preinitiation complex assembly and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Predicted to localize to nucleoplasm and transcription factor TFIIIB complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 112. Orthologous to human BDP1 (B double prime 1, subunit of RNA polymerase III transcription initiation factor IIIB).
