Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have (S)-2-(5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole-4-carboxamido)succinate AMP-lyase (fumarate-forming) activity and N6-(1,2-dicarboxyethyl)AMP AMP-lyase (fumarate-forming) activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including 'de novo' AMP biosynthetic process; aerobic respiration; and protein tetramerization. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in adenylosuccinase lyase deficiency. Orthologous to human ADSL (adenylosuccinate lyase).
