Scaffold protein that functions as a component of a multimolecular complex involved in histone mRNA 3'-end processing. Specific component of the tight junction (TJ) plaque, but might not be an exclusively junctional component. May have a house-keeping rule. Is involved in pre-mRNA polyadenylation. Enhances SSU72 phosphatase activity. Belongs to the Symplekin family. In testis, expressed in polar epithelia and Sertoli cells but not in vascular endothelia. The protein is detected in stomach, duodenum, pancreas, liver, fetal brain, carcinomas, lens-forming cells, fibroblasts, lymphocytes, lymphoma cells, erythroleukemia cells but not in endothelium of vessels, epidermis, intercalated disks, Purkinje fiber cells of the heart and lymph node. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.

Protein type: Motility/polarity/chemotaxis; RNA processing
