Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits Hsp70 protein binding activity; polyubiquitin modification-dependent protein binding activity; and proteasome binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; protein stabilization; and synaptonemal complex assembly. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lung non-small cell carcinoma and osteoarthritis. Orthologous to human BAG6 (BCL2 associated athanogene 6).
