Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including peroxisome targeting sequence binding activity; protein C-terminus binding activity; and protein sequestering activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; nervous system development; and protein import into peroxisome matrix. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; cytosol; and peroxisome. Is expressed in genitourinary system; inner ear; liver; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in peroxisome biogenesis disorder 2A; peroxisome biogenesis disorder 2B; and rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 5. Orthologous to human PEX5 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 5).
