Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have ferrous iron binding activity; oxygen sensor activity; and peptidyl-proline 4-dioxygenase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell redox homeostasis; peptidyl-proline hydroxylation to 4-hydroxy-L-proline; and positive regulation of protein catabolic process. Predicted to localize to the nucleoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in renal cell carcinoma. Is expressed in brain; cerebral cortex; and hippocampus. Orthologous to human EGLN2 (egl-9 family hypoxia inducible factor 2).
