Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits aldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including hexadecanal metabolic process; nervous system development; and terpenoid metabolic process. Localizes to endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; decidua; early conceptus; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Sjogren-Larsson syndrome. Orthologous to human ALDH3A2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family member A2).
