Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have enzyme binding activity; ferrous iron binding activity; and peptidyl-proline 4-dioxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including heart morphogenesis; labyrinthine layer development; and regulation of protein catabolic process at postsynapse, modulating synaptic transmission. Localizes to the glutamatergic synapse and postsynaptic density. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial erythrocytosis 3; polycythemia; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human EGLN1 (egl-9 family hypoxia inducible factor 1).
