Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have several functions, including metal ion binding activity; primary amine oxidase activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including leukocyte migration involved in inflammatory response; negative regulation of primary amine oxidase activity; and positive regulation of glucose transmembrane transport. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; early endosome; and microvillus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; axial skeleton; cardiovascular system; sensory organ; and skin. Orthologous to human AOC3 (amine oxidase copper containing 3).
