Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including phosphate ion binding activity; purine nucleobase binding activity; and purine-nucleoside phosphorylase activity. Predicted to localize to the cytosol; extracellular region; and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency and purine-pyrimidine metabolic disorder. Is expressed in alimentary system and intestine. Orthologous to human PNP (purine nucleoside phosphorylase).
