Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have deoxycytidine kinase activity and thymidine kinase activity. Involved in deoxyribonucleotide metabolic process; mitochondrial DNA metabolic process; and mitochondrial DNA replication. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia and mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 2. Orthologous to human TK2 (thymidine kinase 2).
