Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable metal ion binding activity and phosphoprotein phosphatase activity. Predicted to be involved in peptidyl-threonine dephosphorylation and positive regulation of pyruvate dehydrogenase activity. Located in mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and pyruvate decarboxylase deficiency. Orthologous to human PDP1 (pyruvate dehydrogenase phosphatase catalytic subunit 1).
