Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have dimethylallyltranstransferase activity and geranyltranstransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in farnesyl diphosphate biosynthetic process; positive regulation of cell growth involved in cardiac muscle cell development; and positive regulation of cholesterol biosynthetic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in porokeratosis. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FDPS (farnesyl diphosphate synthase).
