Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and polynucleotide 5'-hydroxyl-kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CLP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NOL9 Gene
Polynucleotide 5'-kinase involved in rRNA processing. The kinase activity is required for the processing of the 32S precursor into 5.8S and 28S rRNAs, more specifically for the generation of the major 5.8S(S) form. In vitro, has both DNA and RNA 5'-kinase activities. Probably binds RNA.
