Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have IMP cyclohydrolase activity; phosphoribosylaminoimidazolecarboxamide formyltransferase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in cellular response to interleukin-7. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in purine-pyrimidine metabolic disorder. Orthologous to human ATIC (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide formyltransferase/IMP cyclohydrolase).
