this gene encodes a transmembrane protein that contains a conserved zinc ribbon motif at the N- terminus. A similar protein in mouse is thought to function in fatty acid homeostasis. Mutations in this gene are associated with early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 38. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2016]
