Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chromatin binding activity. Involved in anterior/posterior pattern specification; blastocyst formation; and mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Localizes to the chromatin; nuclear matrix; and small nuclear ribonucleoprotein complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myelodysplastic syndrome. Orthologous to human SF3B1 (splicing factor 3b subunit 1).
