Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable phospholipid scramblase activity. Involved in autophagy; bone morphogenesis; and positive regulation of necrotic cell death. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including autophagosome assembly; negative regulation of interferon-beta production; and protein localization to Golgi apparatus. Located in Golgi membrane; autophagosome; and endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including cochlea; heart; liver; lung; and telencephalon. Orthologous to human ATG9A (autophagy related 9A).
