Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have 2'-5'-oligoadenylate synthetase activity and double-stranded RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in defense response to virus; negative regulation of viral genome replication; and regulation of ribonuclease activity. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human OAS1 (2'-5'-oligoadenylate synthetase 1).
