Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity. Involved in lysosome localization; positive regulation of bone resorption; and positive regulation of ruffle assembly. Predicted to localize to the nucleolus. Used to study autosomal recessive osteopetrosis 6. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive osteopetrosis 6 and osteopetrosis. Orthologous to human PLEKHM1 (pleckstrin homology and RUN domain containing M1).
