Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in maturation of LSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA); nucleolus organization; and protein localization to organelle. Localizes to the PeBoW complex and condensed chromosome. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and spleen. Orthologous to human PES1 (pescadillo ribosomal biogenesis factor 1).
