Is predicted to encode a protein with the following domains: Zc3h12a-like Ribonuclease NYN domain and Ribonuclease Zc3h12a-like, NYN domain. Is an ortholog of C. elegans rde-8
. In C. elegans, rde-8
is involved in RNA phosphodiester bond hydrolysis, endonucleolytic; positive regulation of RNA-directed 5'-3' RNA polymerase activity; and production of siRNA involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing by RNA.
