Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have ribosome binding activity and sequence-specific mRNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including defense response to other organism; regulation of translation; and viral translational frameshifting. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the P-body; nucleoplasm; and viral replication complex. Orthologous to human SHFL (shiftless antiviral inhibitor of ribosomal frameshifting).
