Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including metal ion binding activity; phosphoric diester hydrolase activity; and single-stranded DNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in double-strand break repair and neuron development. Predicted to localize to the PML body; aggresome; and cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; limb; liver; spleen; and testis. Orthologous to human TDP2 (tyrosyl-DNA phosphodiesterase 2).
