EDC3 Binds single-stranded RNA. Involved in the process of mRNA degradation and in the positive regulation of mRNA decapping. May play a role in spermiogenesis and oogenesis. Belongs to the EDC3 family. Expressed 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. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
