Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including enzyme binding activity; protein domain specific binding activity; and unfolded protein binding activity. Involved in DNA metabolic process; lysosomal transport; and response to heat. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Predicted to colocalize with the COP9 signalosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Kawasaki disease; autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); cystic fibrosis; schizophrenia (multiple); and toxic shock syndrome. Orthologous to several human genes including HSPA1B (heat shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 1B).
