Predicted to have DNA primase activity; DNA-directed DNA polymerase activity; and chromatin binding activity. Involved in mitochondrial DNA replication. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrial matrix and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myopia. Is expressed in several structures, including aorta; brain; endocrine gland; genitourinary system; and trachea. Orthologous to human PRIMPOL (primase and DNA directed polymerase).
