Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits glycerone-phosphate O-acyltransferase activity. Involved in ether lipid biosynthetic process; membrane organization; and nervous system development. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrial membrane and peroxisomal membrane. Used to study rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata type 2. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human GNPAT (glyceronephosphate O-acyltransferase).
