Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits arachidonate 8(S)-lipoxygenase activity. Involved in fatty acid metabolic process; positive regulation of keratinocyte differentiation; and positive regulation of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the cytoskeleton; cytosol; and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human ALOX15B (arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase type B).
