Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have poly(A)-specific ribonuclease activity. Predicted to be involved in nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, exonucleolytic and nuclear-transcribed mRNA poly(A) tail shortening. Localizes to P-body. Is expressed in 1-cell stage embryo; 2-cell stage embryo; 4-cell stage embryo; primary oocyte; and secondary oocyte. Orthologous to human PAN2 (poly(A) specific ribonuclease subunit PAN2).
