Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have GTP binding activity; GTPase activity; and U3 snoRNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in endonucleolytic cleavage of tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA) and maturation of SSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA). Predicted to localize to 90S preribosome; nucleolus; and nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in nonsyndromic aplasia cutis congenita. Orthologous to human BMS1 (BMS1 ribosome biogenesis factor).
