Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have lipid binding activity; protein binding activity, bridging; and protein dimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in peroxisome membrane biogenesis and protein import into peroxisome membrane. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the endoplasmic reticulum; integral component of peroxisomal membrane; and protein-lipid complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in peroxisomal biogenesis disorder and peroxisome biogenesis disorder 10A. Is expressed in cerebral cortex ventricular layer and cortical plate. Orthologous to human PEX3 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 3).
