  • Function

    Involved in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) metabolism. Could function as an adenine nucleotide-dependent DNA helicase. Function inferred to be critical for lifetime maintenance of mtDNA integrity. In vitro, forms in combination with POLG, a processive replication machinery, which can use double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) as template to synthesize single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) molecules. May be a key regulator of mtDNA copy number in mammals.
  • Tissue specificity

    High relative levels in skeletal muscle, testis and pancreas. Lower levels of expression in the heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, kidney, spleen, thymus, prostate, ovary, small intestine, colon and leukocytes. Expression is coregulated with MRPL43.
  • Involvement in disease

    Progressive external ophthalmoplegia with mitochondrial DNA deletions, autosomal dominant, 3
    Sensory ataxic neuropathy dysarthria and ophthalmoparesis
    Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome 7
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 SF4 helicase domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Mitochondrion matrix > mitochondrion nucleoid. Colocalizes with mtDNA in mitochondrial nucleoids, a nucleoproteins complex consisting of a number of copies of proteins associated with mtDNA, probably involved in mtDNA maintenance and expression.
