Predicted to have translation initiation factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including erythrocyte homeostasis; rRNA processing; and ribosomal small subunit biogenesis. Predicted to localize to the cytosolic small ribosomal subunit. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Diamond-Blackfan anemia. Orthologous to human RPS24 (ribosomal protein S24).
