Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (succinyl-transferring) activity. Involved in hematopoietic progenitor cell differentiation. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; mitochondrion; and oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex. Used to study Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2Q and amino acid metabolic disorder. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2Q. Orthologous to human DHTKD1 (dehydrogenase E1 and transketolase domain containing 1).
