Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cystathionine beta-synthase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular amino acid metabolic process; endochondral bone morphogenesis; and regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study homocystinuria. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in coronary artery disease; homocystinuria; and neural tube defect. Orthologous to several human genes including CBSL (cystathionine-beta-synthase like).
