Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including adenyl ribonucleotide binding activity; magnesium ion binding activity; and methionine adenosyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in S-adenosylmethionine biosynthetic process; methionine catabolic process; and protein homotetramerization. Predicted to localize to cytosol and nuclear matrix. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; liver; nervous system; and respiratory system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypermethioninemia. Orthologous to human MAT1A (methionine adenosyltransferase 1A).
