Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have ATPase binding activity; peroxisome membrane class-1 targeting sequence binding activity; and protein N-terminus binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including negative regulation of lipid binding activity; peroxisome organization; and protein stabilization. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including brush border membrane; nucleoplasm; and peroxisomal membrane. Is expressed in brain; dorsal root ganglion; embryo; and neural tube lateral wall. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in peroxisome biogenesis disorder 12A. Orthologous to human PEX19 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 19).
