Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits Atg12 transferase activity and Atg8 ligase activity. Involved in several processes, including autophagosome assembly; mitochondrial fragmentation involved in apoptotic process; and negative regulation of phagocytosis. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasmic ubiquitin ligase complex and cytosol. Orthologous to human ATG3 (autophagy related 3).
