Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity and peptide-aspartate beta-dioxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including face morphogenesis; peptidyl-aspartic acid hydroxylation; and regulation of protein stability. Localizes to cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cholangiocarcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; face; heart; limb; and trunk. Orthologous to human ASPH (aspartate beta-hydroxylase).
