GeneID: 249


Common Name: EXD3 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 9 (NC_000009.12) Locus: N/A
HUGO Symbol: EXD3 Full Name: exonuclease 3'-5' domain containing 3
Exons: 22 Introns: 21

The encoded protein possesses 3'-5' exoribonuclease activity. It has been implicated in post-transcriptional silencing with a possible role in mature miRNA 3'-end processing. It is involved in the trimming of Ago1-loaded miRNAs to enhance target RNA repression. A variant in this gene associated with changes in the total number of white blood cells and neutrophils in sickle cell anaemia.

Synonyms: mut-7
