Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including ATP hydrolysis activity; helicase activity; and nucleic acid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to interleukin-1; nucleic acid metabolic process; and regulation of translation. Predicted to be located in chromosome; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Predicted to be part of exon-exon junction complex and supraspliceosomal complex. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm. Is expressed in cerebral cortex ventricular layer; embryo; and oocyte. Orthologous to human UPF1 (UPF1 RNA helicase and ATPase).
