Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in mRNA splicing, via spliceosome. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including nucleoplasm; spliceosomal complex; and spliceosomal snRNP complex. Used to study Angelman syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Prader-Willi syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; ganglia; male reproductive system; and nasal cavity epithelium. Orthologous to human SNRPN (small nuclear ribonucleoprotein polypeptide N).
