Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in activation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process by cytochrome c; intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to oxidative stress; and neuron apoptotic process. Localizes to the CD40 receptor complex; cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane; and mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 64. Orthologous to human DIABLO (diablo IAP-binding mitochondrial protein).
