Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits 3-chloroallyl aldehyde dehydrogenase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis; optic cup morphogenesis involved in camera-type eye development; and retinoid metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ALDH1A1 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family member A1).
