GeneCards Summary for MGARP Gene
MGARP (Mitochondria Localized Glutamic Acid Rich Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MGARP include hypoxia.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MGARP Gene
Plays a role in the trafficking of mitochondria along microtubules. Regulates the kinesin-mediated axonal transport of mitochondria to nerve terminals along microtubules during hypoxia. Participates in the translocation of TRAK2/GRIF1 from the cytoplasm to the mitochondrion. Also plays a role in steroidogenesis through maintenance of mitochondrial abundance and morphology (By similarity).
