Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have endopeptidase activity and proteasome binding activity. Involved in antigen processing and presentation and response to bacterium. Localizes to proteasome core complex and spermatoproteasome complex. Is expressed in thymus primordium. 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 20S subunit beta 9).
