Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have nucleic acid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in apoptotic chromosome condensation; negative regulation of mRNA splicing, via spliceosome; and positive regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to the nucleolus. Predicted to colocalize with the exon-exon junction complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; early conceptus; olfactory epithelium; oocyte; and retina. Orthologous to human ACIN1 (apoptotic chromatin condensation inducer 1).
