Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including K63-linked polyubiquitin modification-dependent protein binding activity; second spliceosomal transesterification activity; and snRNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to lipopolysaccharide; cellular response to tumor necrosis factor; and spliceosomal tri-snRNP complex assembly. Predicted to localize to the U2-type spliceosomal complex and spliceosomal snRNP complex. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa 13. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 13. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; gonad; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PRPF8 (pre-mRNA processing factor 8).
