Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity. Involved in cotranslational protein targeting to membrane and positive regulation of L-glutamate import across plasma membrane. Localizes to the Sec61 translocon complex; cytosol; and integral component of membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary spastic paraplegia 61. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human ARL6IP1 (ADP ribosylation factor like GTPase 6 interacting protein 1).
