Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have DNA binding activity. Involved in DNA-dependent DNA replication. Predicted to localize to fibrillar center; nuclear origin of replication recognition complex; and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Meier-Gorlin syndrome 3. Is expressed in several structures, including brain ventricular layer; early conceptus; jaw; liver lobe; and submandibular gland primordium. Orthologous to human ORC6 (origin recognition complex subunit 6).
