The official name of this gene is “FAST kinase domains 2.”
FASTKD2 is the gene's official symbol. The FASTKD2 gene is also known by other names, listed below.
This gene encodes a protein that is localized in the mitochondrial inner compartment and that may play a role in mitochondrial apoptosis. Nonsense mutations have been reported to result in cytochrome c oxidase deficiency. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
