Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have RNA 7-methylguanosine cap binding activity and m7G(5')pppN diphosphatase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to menadione; mRNA metabolic process; and negative regulation of programmed cell death. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including P-body; mitochondrion; and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human DCPS (decapping enzyme, scavenger).
