Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have GDP-mannose 4,6-dehydratase activity. Predicted to be involved in 'de novo' GDP-L-fucose biosynthetic process and GDP-mannose metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in open-angle glaucoma. Orthologous to human GMDS (GDP-mannose 4,6-dehydratase).
