ZCCHC8 Scaffolding subunit of the trimeric nuclear exosome targeting (NEXT) complex, a complex that directs a subset of non-coding short-lived RNAs for exosomal degradation. The RNA exosome is fundamental for the degradation of RNA in eukaryotic nuclei. Substrate targeting is facilitated by its cofactor MTREX, which links to RNA-binding protein adapters. May be involved in pre-mRNA splicing. Belongs to the ZCCHC8 family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
