Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have aminomethyltransferase activity and enzyme binding activity. Predicted to be involved in glycine decarboxylation via glycine cleavage system and protein lipoylation. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycine encephalopathy. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; metanephros; nervous system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human GCSH (glycine cleavage system protein H).
