Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to contribute to pyruvate dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity. Predicted to be involved in mitochondrial acetyl-CoA biosynthetic process from pyruvate. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; musculature; nervous system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pyruvate decarboxylase deficiency. Orthologous to human PDHX (pyruvate dehydrogenase complex component X).
