Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits 2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase activity and cytosine C-5 DNA demethylase activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA dealkylation involved in DNA repair and oxidative DNA demethylation. Predicted to localize to the microtubule cytoskeleton and nucleoplasm. Orthologous to human ALKBH2 (alkB homolog 2, alpha-ketoglutarate dependent dioxygenase).
