Systematic name YLR168C
Gene name UPS2
Aliases AIM30, GEP1, MSF1, MSF1'
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr XII:500270..499578
Primary SGDID S000004158

Description of YLR168C: Mitochondrial protein involved in phospholipid metabolism; localizes to the intermembrane space; has a role in regulation of phospholipid metabolism by inhibiting conversion of phosphatidylethanolamine to phosphatidylcholine; null mutant has defects in mitochondrial morphology; similar to Ups1p, Ups3p and to human PRELI[1][2][3][4][5][6]
