Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Enables acylglycerol lipase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid catabolic process; monoacylglycerol catabolic process; and positive regulation of vasoconstriction. Predicted to act upstream of or within lipid catabolic process. Predicted to be located in organelle membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; ganglia; olfactory epithelium; and renal calyx. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and substance-related disorder. Orthologous to human FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase).
