Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have glycine amidinotransferase activity. Involved in positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including extraembryonic component; foregut; genitourinary system; limb; and musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in AGAT deficiency. Orthologous to human GATM (glycine amidinotransferase).
