Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including FMN binding activity; dihydroorotate dehydrogenase activity; and ubiquinone binding activity. Predicted to be involved in positive regulation of apoptotic process; pyrimidine-containing compound biosynthetic process; and regulation of mitochondrial fission. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in postaxial acrofacial dysostosis. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; limb bud; respiratory system; and urinary system. Orthologous to human DHODH (dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (quinone)).
