Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have U1 snRNA binding activity; U1 snRNP binding activity; and mRNA binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Localizes to the nuclear speck. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in disease of mental health and systemic lupus erythematosus. Is expressed in central nervous system; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SNRNP70 (small nuclear ribonucleoprotein U1 subunit 70).
