Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including amino acid binding activity; glutamine-fructose-6-phosphate transaminase (isomerizing) activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in circadian regulation of gene expression. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; and sensory organ. Used to study congenital myasthenic syndrome 12. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome 12 and obesity. Orthologous to human GFPT1 (glutamine--fructose-6-phosphate transaminase 1).
