Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to contribute to NADH dehydrogenase (ubiquinone) activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including apoptotic mitochondrial changes; reactive oxygen species metabolic process; and regulation of mitochondrial membrane potential. Localizes to mitochondrion and myelin sheath. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in inherited metabolic disorder and mitochondrial complex I deficiency. Orthologous to human NDUFS1 (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase core subunit S1).
