Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have 3'-5'-exoribonuclease activity; 5'-3' exonuclease activity; and transcription termination site sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in RNA metabolic process and spermatogenesis. Predicted to localize to the aggresome and nucleolus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in adenoid cystic carcinoma and lung cancer. Orthologous to human XRN2 (5'-3' exoribonuclease 2).
