Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have U1 snRNP binding activity. Predicted to be involved in spliceosomal snRNP assembly. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the methylosome; spliceosomal complex; and spliceosomal snRNP complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in systemic lupus erythematosus. Is expressed in embryo. Orthologous to human SNRPD2 (small nuclear ribonucleoprotein D2 polypeptide).
