Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Predicted to be involved in tRNA-type intron splice site recognition and cleavage. Predicted to act upstream of or within mRNA processing and tRNA processing. Predicted to be located in nucleus. Predicted to be part of tRNA-intron endonuclease complex. Is expressed in cerebellum; retina inner nuclear layer; and retina outer nuclear layer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 2A; pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 4; and pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 5. Orthologous to human TSEN54 (tRNA splicing endonuclease subunit 54).
