Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have endopeptidase activity; peptide binding activity; and tripeptidyl-peptidase activity. Involved in lysosome organization and neuromuscular process controlling balance. Localizes to the lysosome. Used to study neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia 7 and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 2. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; and immune system. Orthologous to human TPP1 (tripeptidyl peptidase 1).
