FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the peptidase A1 family of aspartate proteases and preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to generate a mature protein product. The encoded protein may be involved in antigen processing and the maturation of secretory proteins. Elevated expression of this gene has been observed in neurodegeneration. Homozygous knockout mice for this gene exhibit lysosomal storage disorder, impaired autophagy, mitochondrial abnormalities, dermatitis, and reduced weight gain in an obesity model.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a targeted mutation are viable and fertile, but develop skin lesions on the face, ears, neck and dorsal skin which are similar to those seen in human atopic dermatitis. [provided by MGI curators]
