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 mitochondrion. Used to study mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive progressive external ophthalmoplegia with mitochondrial DNA deletions 3 and mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 2. Orthologous to human TK2 (thymidine kinase 2).
