Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity involved in apoptotic process; scaffold protein binding activity; and ubiquitin protein ligase activity. Involved in inhibition of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process and neuron apoptotic process. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in X-linked lymphoproliferative syndrome 2 and prostate cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; gallbladder; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Orthologous to several human genes including XIAP (X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis).
