Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables NAD-retinol dehydrogenase activity. Involved in positive regulation of retinoic acid biosynthetic process; retinal metabolic process; and retinol metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic forelimb morphogenesis; and retinoic acid biosynthetic process. Located in membrane. Predicted to be active in lipid droplet. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human RDH10 (retinol dehydrogenase 10).
