Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in several processes, including mitochondrion morphogenesis; neuromuscular process; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study 3-methylglutaconic aciduria type 3. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in 3-methylglutaconic aciduria type 3 and optic atrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; hair follicle; jaw; musculoskeletal system; and optic nerve. Orthologous to human OPA3 (outer mitochondrial membrane lipid metabolism regulator OPA3).
