Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have pre-mRNA 3'-splice site binding activity; second spliceosomal transesterification activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to heat; intracellular protein transport; and mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Predicted to localize to cytosol and nucleus. Is expressed in eye; heart; islets of Langerhans; and lung epithelium. Orthologous to human SLU7 (SLU7 homolog, splicing factor).
