Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to have nucleic acid binding activity and translation regulator activity. Involved in positive regulation of cell population proliferation and positive regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to cytosol; endoplasmic reticulum; and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; central nervous system; egg cylinder; and genitourinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myotonic dystrophy type 2. Orthologous to human CNBP (CCHC-type zinc finger nucleic acid binding protein).
