Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable DNA binding activity and DNA clamp unloader activity. Involved in cell population proliferation; negative regulation of intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to DNA damage by p53 class mediator; and nuclear DNA replication. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including intracellular signal transduction; negative regulation of intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to DNA damage; and positive regulation of B cell activation. Located in nucleus. Is expressed in liver; metanephros; midbrain ventricular layer; renal cortex; and telencephalon ventricular layer. Orthologous to human ATAD5 (ATPase family AAA domain containing 5).
