Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding activity and activating transcription factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including chaperone-mediated protein complex assembly; negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and protein insertion into mitochondrial outer membrane. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cytosol; extracellular exosome; and lipid droplet. Is expressed in early tubule; female associated reproductive structure; male associated reproductive structure; ovary; and testis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Chagas disease. Orthologous to human HSPA4 (heat shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 4).
