DEAD Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp box polypeptide 31, also known as DDX31, is a human gene.

Dead box proteins, characterized by conservative motif ASP-STU-Ala-ASP, dead putative RNA helicase. They are involved in a number of cellular processes, including changes of the secondary structure of RNA, such as translation initiation, nuclear and mitochondrial splicing, and ribosome and spliceosome Assembly. On the basis of their distribution and some members of this dead box protein family, is thought to be involved in embryogenesis, spermatogenesis and cellular growth and division. This gene encodes a member of this family. The function of this element has not been defined. Alternative splicing of this gene generates 2 transcript.
