Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to be a structural constituent of ribosome. Predicted to be involved in mitochondrial ribosome assembly and mitochondrial translation. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency. Is expressed in cerebral cortex ventricular layer and cortical plate. Orthologous to human MRPS2 (mitochondrial ribosomal protein S2).
