Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits arachidonate 12(S)-lipoxygenase activity and arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including icosanoid metabolic process; phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthetic process; and regulation of engulfment of apoptotic cell. Localizes to cytosol and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; liver; nose; peritoneal fluid; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human ALOX15 (arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase).
