Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have 3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA 24-hydroxylase activity; acyl-CoA oxidase activity; and anion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including fatty acid beta-oxidation using acyl-CoA oxidase; lipid homeostasis; and positive regulation of response to oxidative stress. Predicted to localize to cytosol and peroxisome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital bile acid synthesis defect 6. Is expressed in several structures, including heart ventricle; liver; metanephros; and trunk. Orthologous to human ACOX2 (acyl-CoA oxidase 2).
