Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits fructose-2,6-bisphosphate 2-phosphatase activity. Involved in several processes, including fructose 2,6-bisphosphate metabolic process; negative regulation of cellular metabolic process; and positive regulation of cardiac muscle cell apoptotic process. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in brain; immune system; and liver. Orthologous to human TIGAR (TP53 induced glycolysis regulatory phosphatase).
