Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits L-gulonolactone oxidase activity and flavin adenine dinucleotide binding activity. Involved in L-ascorbic acid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in scurvy. Is expressed in several structures, including cranium; liver; nasal septum; nervous system; and pancreas. Orthologous to human GULOP (gulonolactone (L-) oxidase, pseudogene).
