Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits SUMO transferase activity. Predicted to contribute to GTPase activator activity. Involved in positive regulation of glucokinase activity and regulation of gluconeogenesis. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in brain disease and inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; alimentary system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; and nervous system. Orthologous to several human genes including RANBP2 (RAN binding protein 2).
