Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable DNA binding activity and zinc ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Predicted to act upstream of or within RNA splicing and mRNA processing. Predicted to be located in nucleus. Predicted to be part of U2-type precatalytic spliceosome and U4/U6 x U5 tri-snRNP complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ZMAT2 (zinc finger matrin-type 2).
