Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits RNA polymerase II cis-regulatory region sequence-specific DNA binding activity and miRNA binding activity. Involved in miRNA metabolic process; positive regulation of NIK/NF-kappaB signaling; and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to several cellular components, including P-body; RISC complex; and cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including 2-cell stage embryo; central nervous system; lung epithelium; sensory organ; and tooth. Orthologous to human AGO1 (argonaute RISC component 1).
