Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have 3'-5'-exoribonuclease activity; RNA binding activity; and polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase activity. Involved in mitochondrial mRNA catabolic process; mitochondrion morphogenesis; and regulation of cellular respiration. Localizes to the mitochondrial intermembrane space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 70 and combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency. Orthologous to human PNPT1 (polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase 1).
