Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits protein-glutaryllysine deglutarylase activity; protein-malonyllysine demalonylase activity; and protein-succinyllysine desuccinylase activity. Involved in several processes, including protein deacylation; regulation of succinate dehydrogenase activity; and response to ischemia. Localizes to cytosol and mitochondrial inner membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including 1st branchial arch maxillary component; heart; oocyte; palatal shelf; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SIRT5 (sirtuin 5).
