Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds, in linear amides. Involved in several processes, including adaptive thermogenesis; energy homeostasis; and regulation of oxidative phosphorylation uncoupler activity. Localizes to extracellular space. Is expressed in embryo; embryo endoderm; and notochord. Orthologous to human PM20D1 (peptidase M20 domain containing 1).
