Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to contribute to endopeptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in protein processing involved in protein targeting to mitochondrion. Localizes to mitochondrial respiratory chain complex III. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; midbrain; sensory organ; and telencephalon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in mitochondrial complex III deficiency nuclear type 5. Orthologous to human UQCRC2 (ubiquinol-cytochrome c reductase core protein 2).
