Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have endopeptidase activity and proteasome binding activity. Involved in antigen processing and presentation and response to bacterium. Localizes to the proteasome core complex and spermatoproteasome complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ankylosing spondylitis; autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); lymphoma; psoriasis; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human PSMB9 (proteasome subunit beta 9).
