Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits molecular adaptor activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of protein ubiquitination; protein-containing complex assembly; and type II pneumocyte differentiation. Localizes to the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase multienzyme complex and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypomyelinating leukodystrophy. Orthologous to human AIMP2 (aminoacyl tRNA synthetase complex interacting multifunctional protein 2).
