Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to contribute to NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone) activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular respiration; mitochondrial respiratory chain complex I assembly; and response to oxidative stress. Localizes to mitochondrial respiratory chain complex I. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in mitochondrial complex I deficiency. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus and oocyte. Orthologous to human NDUFS8 (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase core subunit S8).
