The gene codes for a protein called battenin, which is found in the membranes of the cell (most predominantly in lysosomes and in related structures called endosomes).
Similarly, the top statistically significant enriched processes in LvM442 are related to protein maturation or processing and are represented by genes such as Battenin (CLN3) and Methionine aminopeptidase 2 (METAP2).
