Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have 3-oxo-5-beta-steroid 4-dehydrogenase activity; alditol:NADP+ 1-oxidoreductase activity; and ketosteroid monooxygenase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including bile acid biosynthetic process; cellular hormone metabolic process; and cholesterol catabolic process. Predicted to localize to cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; heart; liver; nervous system; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital bile acid synthesis defect 2. Orthologous to human AKR1D1 (aldo-keto reductase family 1 member D1).
