Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits retinol dehydrogenase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ morphogenesis; negative regulation of retinoic acid receptor signaling pathway; and regulation of ossification. Predicted to localize to lipid droplet. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human DHRS3 (dehydrogenase/reductase 3).
