Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have chaperone binding activity; dihydrolipoyllysine-residue succinyltransferase activity; and heat shock protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in 2-oxoglutarate metabolic process; NADH metabolic process; and histone succinylation. Localizes to the mitochondrion and myelin sheath. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and paraganglioma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; metanephros; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human DLST (dihydrolipoamide S-succinyltransferase).
