Gene: Taz (tafazzin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Taz
Name: tafazzin
Description: Predicted to have 1-acylglycerophosphocholine O-acyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cardiolipin metabolic process; positive regulation of phosphate metabolic process; and striated muscle tissue development. Predicted to localize to mitochondrial membrane. Is expressed in alimentary system; respiratory system; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Barth syndrome and dilated cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human TAZ (tafazzin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
