Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase activity; arachidonate 8(S)-lipoxygenase activity; and linoleate 9S-lipoxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including 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 adherens junction; extrinsic component of membrane; and focal adhesion. Orthologous to human ALOX15B (arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase type B).
