FunctionBinds single-stranded RNA. In the process of mRNA degradation, may play a role in mRNA decapping. May play a role in spermiogenesis and oogenesis.
Tissue specificityExpressed in theca and granulosa cells in ovary, and in spermatids of the meiotic division part II and apical membrane of Sertoli cells in testis (at protein level). Also expressed in brain and mammary gland.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the EDC3 family. Contains 1 DFDF domain. Contains 1 YjeF N-terminal domain.
DomainThe DFDF domain is unstructured by itself. It assumes a helical fold upon interaction with DDX6.
