From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a subunit of the multi-protein THO complex, which is involved in coordination between transcription and mRNA processing. The THO complex is a component of the TREX (transcription/export) complex, which is involved in transcription and export of mRNAs. A missense mutation in this gene is associated with a neurodevelopmental disorder called Beaulieu-Boycott-Innes syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]
Acts as component of the THO subcomplex of the TREX complex which is thought to couple mRNA transcription, processing and nuclear export, and which specifically associates with spliced mRNA and not with unspliced pre-mRNA. TREX is recruited to spliced mRNAs by a transcription-independent mechanism, binds to mRNA upstream of the exon-junction complex (EJC) and is recruited in a splicing- and cap-dependent manner to a region near the 5' end of the mRNA where it functions in mRNA export to the cytoplasm via the TAP/NFX1 pathway. The TREX complex is essential for the export of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) intronless mRNAs and infectious virus production. Plays a role in apoptosis negative control involved in brain development.
