Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have phosphatidic acid binding activity and phosphatidylinositol-3,5-bisphosphate binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of exosomal secretion; regulation of lysosomal protein catabolic process; and zinc ion homeostasis. Localizes to the neuron projection; neuronal cell body; and vesicle membrane. Used to study Kufor-Rakeb syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kufor-Rakeb syndrome; Parkinson's disease; and hereditary spastic paraplegia. Orthologous to human ATP13A2 (ATPase cation transporting 13A2).
