Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable heme binding activity; iron ion binding activity; and long-chain fatty acid omega-hydroxylase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid omega-oxidation. Predicted to act upstream of or within lipid metabolic process. Predicted to be located in endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in central nervous system; pancreas epithelium; and sensory organ. Used to study Bietti crystalline corneoretinal dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Bietti crystalline corneoretinal dystrophy. Orthologous to human CYP4V2 (cytochrome P450 family 4 subfamily V member 2).
