Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including magnesium ion binding activity; purine ribonucleotide binding activity; and ribose phosphate diphosphokinase activity. Predicted to be involved in 5-phosphoribose 1-diphosphate biosynthetic process and AMP biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm and ribose phosphate diphosphokinase complex. Is expressed in alimentary system; central nervous system; and retina. Orthologous to human PRPS2 (phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase 2).
