    Predicted to enable ferric iron binding activity; ferrous iron binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in intracellular sequestering of iron ion. Predicted to be located in autolysosome. Predicted to be part of intracellular ferritin complex. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; ciliary body; liver; and retina nuclear layer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in basal ganglia disease; hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome; neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 3; and neurodegenerative disease. Orthologous to human FTL (ferritin light chain). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

    RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

    These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

    These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
