Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have endopeptidase activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in proteasomal ubiquitin-independent protein catabolic process; proteasome-mediated ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process; and regulation of endopeptidase activity. Localizes to the proteasome core complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; cranium; dorsal root ganglion; and lung. Orthologous to human PSMA3 (proteasome 20S subunit alpha 3).
