Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have enzyme binding activity; oxidoreductase activity, acting on the CH-CH group of donors, NAD or NADP as acceptor; and peptide antigen binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cholesterol biosynthetic process; male genitalia development; and plasminogen activation. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cytoskeleton; cytosol; and endoplasmic reticulum. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lipid metabolism disorder. Orthologous to human DHCR24 (24-dehydrocholesterol reductase).
