Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity and mRNA 3'-UTR AU-rich region binding activity. Predicted to be involved in RNA metabolic process. Predicted to localize to cytoplasmic exosome (RNase complex); cytosol; and nuclear lumen. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; immune system; and integumental system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pontocerebellar hypoplasia. Orthologous to human EXOSC8 (exosome component 8).
