Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including argininosuccinate synthase activity; identical protein binding activity; and toxic substance binding activity. Involved in circadian rhythm. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Used to study citrullinemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in citrullinemia; hepatocellular carcinoma; and melanoma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; integumental system; metanephros; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ASS1 (argininosuccinate synthase 1).
