Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have cation binding activity; poly(A)-specific ribonuclease activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in nuclear-transcribed mRNA poly(A) tail shortening. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm; nuclear speck; and nucleolus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive dyskeratosis congenita 6. Is expressed in bladder; male associated reproductive structure; testis; ureter; and urethra of male. Orthologous to human PARN (poly(A)-specific ribonuclease).
