Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to be involved in mitochondrion organization; negative regulation of parkin-mediated stimulation of mitophagy in response to mitochondrial depolarization; and protein localization to organelle. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; extrinsic component of membrane; and mitochondrial outer membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive early-onset Parkinson's disease 23. Orthologous to human VPS13C (vacuolar protein sorting 13 homolog C).
