Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including anion binding activity; melatonin binding activity; and oxidoreductase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; positive regulation of neuron apoptotic process; and positive regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. Predicted to localize to cytosol and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in adenohypophysis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Parkinson's disease; agranulocytosis; breast cancer; and breast carcinoma. Orthologous to human NQO2 (N-ribosyldihydronicotinamide:quinone reductase 2).
