Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have C-22 sterol desaturase activity; retinoic acid 4-hydroxylase activity; and retinoic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including anterior/posterior pattern specification; neural crest cell development; and organelle fusion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in focal dermal hypoplasia. Is expressed in several structures, including 1st branchial arch; alimentary system; amnion; future hindbrain; and inner ear. Orthologous to human CYP26C1 (cytochrome P450 family 26 subfamily C member 1).
