Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have U12 snRNA binding activity and pre-mRNA intronic binding activity. Predicted to be involved in mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Predicted to localize to U12-type spliceosomal complex and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; nose; and trigeminal nerve. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in isolated growth hormone deficiency. Orthologous to human RNPC3 (RNA binding region (RNP1, RRM) containing 3).
