Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to nucleobase-containing compound kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in ATP metabolic process and purine nucleotide metabolic process. Localizes to the sperm mitochondrial sheath. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in reticular dysgenesis. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; musculoskeletal system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AK2 (adenylate kinase 2).
