Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have polynucleotide 5'-hydroxyl-kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in cleavage in ITS2 between 5.8S rRNA and LSU-rRNA of tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA). Predicted to localize to intermediate filament cytoskeleton and nucleolus. Orthologous to human NOL9 (nucleolar protein 9).
