Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits palmitoyl-(protein) hydrolase activity. Involved in several processes, including grooming behavior; protein catabolic process; and regulation of phospholipase A2 activity. Localizes to several cellular components, including the extracellular space; lysosome; and neuron projection. Used to study neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 1 and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 3. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 1. Orthologous to human PPT1 (palmitoyl-protein thioesterase 1).
