Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have 5'-3' exoribonuclease activity and m7G(5')pppN diphosphatase activity. Involved in mRNA catabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the P-body; RISC complex; and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; liver; lung; and spleen. Orthologous to human DCP2 (decapping mRNA 2).
