Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables AMP deaminase activity. Involved in erythrocyte homeostasis and purine ribonucleotide metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within ATP metabolic process; energy homeostasis; and purine ribonucleotide metabolic process. Predicted to be active in cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; heart ventricle; liver; nervous system; and secondary oocyte. Orthologous to human AMPD3 (adenosine monophosphate deaminase 3).
