Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits acetate-CoA ligase activity and propionate-CoA ligase activity. Involved in acetyl-CoA biosynthetic process. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in orofacial cleft. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; liver; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ACSS2 (acyl-CoA synthetase short chain family member 2).
