Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits copper transmembrane transporter activity, phosphorylative mechanism. Involved in several processes, including cellular transition metal ion homeostasis; lactation; and protein maturation by copper ion transfer. Localizes to the membrane and trans-Golgi network. Predicted to colocalize with the basolateral plasma membrane and cytoplasmic vesicle. Used to study Wilson disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Wilson disease. Orthologous to human ATP7B (ATPase copper transporting beta).
