FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a copper chaperone that plays a role in copper homeostasis by binding and transporting cytosolic copper to ATPase proteins in the trans-Golgi network for later incorporation to the ceruloplasmin. This protein also functions as an antioxidant against superoxide and hydrogen peroxide, and therefore, may play a significant role in cancer carcinogenesis. Because of its cytogenetic location, this gene represents a candidate gene for 5q-syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation have impaired intracellular copper trafficking and exhibit high postnatal mortality, retarded growth, hypoactivity, loose skin, hypopigmentation, and seizures. [provided by MGI curators]
