Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including lysophosphatidic acid binding activity; peptidase activity, acting on L-amino acid peptides; and sulfatide binding activity. Involved in lysosome organization and neuromuscular process controlling balance. Localizes to lysosome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; and immune system. 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. Orthologous to human TPP1 (tripeptidyl peptidase 1).
