Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits peroxiredoxin activity. Involved in several processes, including detoxification of inorganic compound; regulation of intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway; and regulation of reactive oxygen species biosynthetic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell body; endoplasmic reticulum; and mitochondrion. Used to study Parkinson's disease 7. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Parkinson's disease; Parkinson's disease 7; cerebral infarction; and middle cerebral artery infarction. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human PARK7 (Parkinsonism associated deglycase).
