Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Is predicted to enable RNA binding activity and translation repressor activity. Involved in P-body assembly and deadenylation-dependent decapping of nuclear-transcribed mRNA. Acts upstream of or within negative regulation of cytoplasmic mRNA processing body assembly. Located in P-body and nucleus. Used to study ovarian disease. Orthologous to human PATL2 (PAT1 homolog 2).
