Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have anion binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and pyruvate carboxylase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including carboxylic acid metabolic process; gluconeogenesis; and positive regulation by host of viral release from host cell. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pyruvate carboxylase deficiency disease. Orthologous to human PC (pyruvate carboxylase).
