Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase activity. Predicted to be involved in L-proline biosynthetic process and cellular response to oxidative stress. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypomyelinating leukodystrophy 10. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; respiratory system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human PYCR2 (pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase 2).
