Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GTP binding activity; GTPase activity; and U3 snoRNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in maturation of SSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA). Predicted to localize to the 90S preribosome and nucleolus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ectodermal dysplasia. Orthologous to human BMS1 (BMS1 ribosome biogenesis factor).
