Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; mRNA binding activity; and phosphodiesterase decapping endonuclease activity. Predicted to be involved in cytoplasmic mRNA processing body assembly and deadenylation-independent decapping of nuclear-transcribed mRNA. Predicted to localize to the P-body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability. Is expressed in cerebellum; embryo; hippocampus; retina inner nuclear layer; and retina outer nuclear layer. Orthologous to human EDC3 (enhancer of mRNA decapping 3).
