Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein disulfide oxidoreductase activity. Involved in several processes, including copper ion homeostasis; respiratory chain complex IV assembly; and response to activity. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study cytochrome-c oxidase deficiency disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cytochrome-c oxidase deficiency disease; fatal infantile cardioencephalomyopathy due to cytochrome c oxidase deficiency 1; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; and myopia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; aorta; blastocyst; gonad; and hemolymphoid system gland. Orthologous to human SCO2 (synthesis of cytochrome C oxidase 2).
