Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits RNA binding activity; endoribonuclease activity; and polysome binding activity. Involved in several processes, including RNA metabolic process; gamete generation; and positive regulation of cellular protein metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the PET complex; cytoplasm; and perinucleolar chromocenter. Orthologous to human PIWIL2 (piwi like RNA-mediated gene silencing 2).
