Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including peroxisome matrix targeting signal-1 binding activity; protein C-terminus binding activity; and protein N-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; nervous system development; and positive regulation of growth. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and protein-containing complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in peroxisomal biogenesis disorder; peroxisome biogenesis disorder 2A; and rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 5. Orthologous to human PEX5 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 5).
