Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have Rab GTPase binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of mitophagy; negative regulation of proteasomal ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process; and positive regulation of autophagosome maturation. Localizes to the endolysosome membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the late endosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Addison's disease; multiple sclerosis; rheumatoid arthritis; and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human CLEC16A (C-type lectin domain containing 16A).
