Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have peroxisome targeting sequence binding activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid alpha-oxidation; microtubule-based peroxisome localization; and nervous system development. Localizes to the peroxisomal membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in peroxisomal biogenesis disorder and peroxisome biogenesis disorder 11A. Is expressed in brain and liver. Orthologous to human PEX13 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 13).
