Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits L-glucuronate reductase activity; alditol:NADP+ 1-oxidoreductase activity; and glucuronolactone reductase activity. Involved in aldehyde catabolic process; carboxylic acid metabolic process; and cellular detoxification of aldehyde. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane; cytosol; and synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AKR1A1 (aldo-keto reductase family 1 member A1).
