Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable succinate-CoA ligase (ADP-forming) activity and succinate-CoA ligase (GDP-forming) activity. Predicted to be involved in succinate metabolic process; succinyl-CoA metabolic process; and tricarboxylic acid cycle. Located in mitochondrion and myelin sheath. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Used to study mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 5. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 5. Orthologous to human SUCLA2 (succinate-CoA ligase ADP-forming subunit beta).
