Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein homodimerization activity and thymidine phosphorylase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including regulation of gastric motility; regulation of myelination; and regulation of transmission of nerve impulse. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Used to study mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lung non-small cell carcinoma; mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 1; mitochondrial encephalomyopathy; pancreatic cancer; and transitional cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human TYMP (thymidine phosphorylase).
