Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have GTP binding activity; GTPase activity; and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including Golgi organization; positive regulation of endoplasmic reticulum tubular network organization; and protein homooligomerization. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum tubular network; endoplasmic reticulum tubular network membrane; and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in olfactory cortex ventricular layer; orbito-sphenoid; and telencephalon ventricular layer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary sensory neuropathy type 1F. Orthologous to human ATL3 (atlastin GTPase 3).
