Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.1)
Predicted to enable tRNA-intron endonuclease activity. 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 centrosome; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Predicted to be part of tRNA-intron endonuclease complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 2B. Orthologous to human TSEN2 (tRNA splicing endonuclease subunit 2).
