Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (quinone) activity. Involved in negative regulation of catalytic activity and response to oxidative stress. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; dendrite; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including asthma; hematologic cancer (multiple); lung disease (multiple); macular degeneration; and small cell carcinoma. Is expressed in heart; olfactory epithelium; and skin. Orthologous to human NQO1 (NAD(P)H quinone dehydrogenase 1).
