Predicted to have RNA binding activity and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in gene silencing by RNA and positive regulation of nuclear-transcribed mRNA poly(A) tail shortening. Localizes to the cytoplasm and synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; gonad; gut; sensory organ; and spleen. Orthologous to several human genes including PABPC1 (poly(A) binding protein cytoplasmic 1).
