Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GTP binding activity and translation elongation factor activity. Involved in nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, no-go decay and rescue of stalled ribosome. Predicted to localize to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Is expressed in central nervous system and eye. Orthologous to human GTPBP2 (GTP binding protein 2).
