Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein homodimerization activity. Involved in positive regulation by host of viral genome replication; positive regulation of protein targeting to membrane; and regulation of acid-sensing ion channel activity. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane; mitochondrion; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in bladder; gut; and liver lobe. Orthologous to human STOM (stomatin).
