Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable mitochondrion targeting sequence binding activity and protein transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in protein insertion into mitochondrial inner membrane. Predicted to act upstream of or within protein transport. Located in mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; egg cylinder; and genitourinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency 43. Orthologous to human TIMM22 (translocase of inner mitochondrial membrane 22).
