Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have copper ion binding activity and dopamine beta-monooxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to ethanol; catecholamine metabolic process; and learning or memory. Localizes to secretory granule lumen and secretory granule membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; and nervous system. Used to study dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including alcohol use disorder; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency; hypertension; and migraine with aura. Orthologous to human DBH (dopamine beta-hydroxylase).
