Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits ATP binding activity and proton-transporting ATP synthase activity, rotational mechanism. Predicted to contribute to ATPase activity. Involved in lipid metabolic process. Localizes to the membrane and mitochondrion. Predicted to colocalize with the COP9 signalosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency and mitochondrial complex V (ATP synthase) deficiency nuclear type 4. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ATP5F1A (ATP synthase F1 subunit alpha).
