From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a calcium-binding mitochondrial carrier protein. The encoded protein localizes to the mitochondria and is involved in the exchange of aspartate for glutamate across the inner mitochondrial membrane. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with autism, and mutations in this gene may also be a cause of global cerebral hypomyelination. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]

From UniProt:

Catalyzes the calcium-dependent exchange of cytoplasmic glutamate with mitochondrial aspartate across the mitochondrial inner membrane. May have a function in the urea cycle.

  • Hypomyelination, global cerebral

From UniProt:

Global cerebral hypomyelination (GCHM): A disorder with onset in infancy and characterized by severe psychomotor retardation, hypotonia, seizures, hypomyelination of the central nervous system, with the gray matter appearing relatively unaffected. [MIM:612949]
