Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable box H/ACA snoRNA binding activity and telomerase RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in snRNA pseudouridine synthesis; snoRNA guided rRNA pseudouridine synthesis; and telomere maintenance via telomerase. Predicted to act upstream of or within rRNA processing. Predicted to be located in nuclear body. Predicted to be part of box H/ACA snoRNP complex and box H/ACA telomerase RNP complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; and integumental system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive dyskeratosis congenita 1. Orthologous to human NOP10 (NOP10 ribonucleoprotein).
