Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have alkylglycerone-phosphate synthase activity. Predicted to be involved in lipid biosynthetic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 3. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata and rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 3. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; respiratory system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Orthologous to human AGPS (alkylglycerone phosphate synthase).
