Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.2.0)
Predicted to enable NAD(P)H oxidase H2O2-forming activity; calcium ion binding activity; and superoxide-generating NAD(P)H oxidase activity. Acts upstream of or within animal organ development; fertilization; and thyroid hormone metabolic process. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including cell leading edge; cell surface; and endoplasmic reticulum. Predicted to be part of NADPH oxidase complex. Predicted to be active in plasma membrane. Is expressed in placenta and thyroid gland. Used to study congenital hypothyroidism. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital hypothyroidism and thyroid dyshormonogenesis 6. Orthologous to human DUOX2 (dual oxidase 2).
