Predicted to have several functions, including identical protein binding activity; phosphate ion binding activity; and purine-nucleoside phosphorylase activity. Predicted to localize to cytosol; extracellular region; and nucleus. Is expressed in alimentary system and intestine. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency and purine-pyrimidine metabolic disorder. Orthologous to human PNP (purine nucleoside phosphorylase).
