Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in plus-end-directed vesicle transport along microtubule and positive regulation of autophagosome maturation. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus; late endosome; and vacuole. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 18. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; and retina. Orthologous to human FYCO1 (FYVE and coiled-coil domain autophagy adaptor 1).
