Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits nicotinamide-nucleotide adenylyltransferase activity and nicotinate-nucleotide adenylyltransferase activity. Involved in NAD biosynthetic process and response to wounding. Localizes to the nucleus. Used to study Leber congenital amaurosis 9 and retinal degeneration. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Leber congenital amaurosis 9. Orthologous to human NMNAT1 (nicotinamide nucleotide adenylyltransferase 1).
