Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to be involved in maturation of SSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA); positive regulation of rRNA processing; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase I. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the mitochondrion; nucleolus; and small-subunit processome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic ductal carcinoma. Orthologous to human HEATR1 (HEAT repeat containing 1).
