Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to have 3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA 24-hydroxylase activity; anion binding activity; and palmitoyl-CoA oxidase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; lipid homeostasis; and positive regulation of response to oxidative stress. Predicted to localize to cytosol and peroxisome. Is expressed in several structures, including heart ventricle; liver; metanephros; and trunk. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital bile acid synthesis defect 6. Orthologous to human ACOX2 (acyl-CoA oxidase 2).
