Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including PDZ domain binding activity; anion binding activity; and palmitoyl-CoA oxidase activity. Involved in fatty acid oxidation and spermatogenesis. Localizes to peroxisomal membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Used to study peroxisomal acyl-CoA oxidase deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in peroxisomal acyl-CoA oxidase deficiency. Orthologous to human ACOX1 (acyl-CoA oxidase 1).
