Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits long-chain-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity. Involved in fatty acid beta-oxidation and response to insulin. Localizes to mitochondrial inner membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in fatty liver disease and mitochondrial trifunctional protein deficiency. Orthologous to human HADHA (hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase trifunctional multienzyme complex subunit alpha).
