Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Predicted to enable SUMO binding activity; ubiquitin protein ligase activity; and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Involved in proteasome-mediated ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process. Acts upstream of or within spermatogenesis. Located in mitochondrial inner membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; liver; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and spleen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive intellectual developmental disorder 38 and pigmentation disease. Orthologous to human HERC2 (HECT and RLD domain containing E3 ubiquitin protein ligase 2).
