Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have lanosterol synthase activity. Predicted to be involved in cholesterol biosynthetic process and regulation of protein stability. Predicted to localize to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and lipid droplet. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 44 and hypotrichosis 14. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human LSS (lanosterol synthase).
