Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA-DNA hybrid ribonuclease activity. Involved in mismatch repair. Localizes to the ribonuclease H2 complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo ectoderm; gut; hemolymphoid system gland; skin; and testis. Orthologous to human RNASEH2A (ribonuclease H2 subunit A).
