Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to cytochrome-c oxidase activity. Involved in several processes, including aerobic respiration; heme a biosynthetic process; and mitochondrial fission. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study Parkinson's disease; cytochrome-c oxidase deficiency disease; and mitochondrial myopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Leigh disease and cytochrome-c oxidase deficiency disease. Is expressed in alimentary system; nervous system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human COX10 (cytochrome c oxidase assembly factor heme A:farnesyltransferase COX10).
