Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables ubiquitin protein ligase activity. Involved in embryo development; sensory perception of smell; and ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process. Acts upstream of or within in utero embryonic development; olfactory behavior; and suckling behavior. Predicted to be located in membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Predicted to be part of ubiquitin ligase complex. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm. Is expressed in cranial ganglion and dorsal root ganglion. Orthologous to human UBR3 (ubiquitin protein ligase E3 component n-recognin 3).
