Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits oxidoreductase activity, acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen, reduced flavin or flavoprotein as one donor, and incorporation of one atom of oxygen. Involved in several processes, including blood vessel morphogenesis; cellular response to oxidative stress; and retinoid metabolic process. Localizes to mitochondrion. Used to study buphthalmos. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Peters anomaly; breast cancer; glaucoma (multiple); and lung squamous cell carcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; musculature; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CYP1B1 (cytochrome P450 family 1 subfamily B member 1).
