Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have (R)-2-hydroxyglutarate dehydrogenase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including response to cobalt ion; response to manganese ion; and response to zinc ion. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in D-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria 1. Orthologous to human D2HGDH (D-2-hydroxyglutarate dehydrogenase).
