Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have RNA polymerase I core binding activity; protein heterodimerization activity; and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in nucleolar large rRNA transcription by RNA polymerase I. Predicted to localize to cytosol; fibrillar center; and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including appendicular skeleton; branchial arch; future brain; genitourinary system; and somite. Used to study Treacher Collins syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Treacher Collins syndrome. Orthologous to human TCOF1 (treacle ribosome biogenesis factor 1).
