Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in spliceosomal complex assembly. Predicted to localize to Prp19 complex; U2-type catalytic step 2 spliceosome; and post-mRNA release spliceosomal complex. Is expressed in brain; olfactory epithelium; and spinal cord. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in basal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human CRNKL1 (crooked neck pre-mRNA splicing factor 1).
