Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have phosphatidylinositol-3,5-bisphosphate binding activity; phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate binding activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including autophagy of mitochondrion; protein lipidation; and protein localization to phagophore assembly site. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; extrinsic component of membrane; and phagophore assembly site membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 5. Orthologous to human WDR45 (WD repeat domain 45).
