Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have nucleic acid binding activity and tRNA-intron endonuclease activity. Predicted to be involved in mRNA processing and tRNA splicing, via endonucleolytic cleavage and ligation. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pontocerebellar hypoplasia. Orthologous to human TSEN15 (tRNA splicing endonuclease subunit 15).
