Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including monosaccharide binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and ribulose-phosphate 3-epimerase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular carbohydrate metabolic process; pentose catabolic process; and pentose-phosphate shunt, non-oxidative branch. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Orthologous to several human genes including RPE (ribulose-5-phosphate-3-epimerase).
