Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Predicted to enable metal ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in box C/D snoRNP assembly; maturation of LSU-rRNA from tricistronic rRNA transcript (SSU-rRNA, 5.8S rRNA, LSU-rRNA); and snoRNA localization. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm. Predicted to be part of pre-snoRNP complex. Predicted to be active in nucleus. Is expressed in liver; pancreas; submandibular gland primordium; thymus primordium; and vibrissa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in PEHO syndrome. Orthologous to human ZNHIT3 (zinc finger HIT-type containing 3).
