Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have succinate-CoA ligase (ADP-forming) activity. Predicted to be involved in succinate metabolic process; succinyl-CoA metabolic process; and tricarboxylic acid cycle. Localizes to 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).
