Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have double-stranded DNA binding activity; kinase activity; and polynucleotide 3'-phosphatase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including DNA 3' dephosphorylation involved in DNA repair; negative regulation of protein ADP-ribosylation; and positive regulation of DNA metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrion and nucleolus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in microcephaly, seizures, and developmental delay. Orthologous to human PNKP (polynucleotide kinase 3'-phosphatase).
