Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have cis-stilbene-oxide hydrolase activity; enzyme binding activity; and epoxide hydrolase activity. Involved in cellular aromatic compound metabolic process and response to organic cyclic compound. Predicted to localize to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Leber hereditary optic neuropathy; anemia (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); respiratory system disease (multiple); and toxic encephalopathy. Is expressed in several structures, including brain ventricle and choroid plexus; cranial ganglion; integumental system; nose; and salivary gland. Orthologous to human EPHX1 (epoxide hydrolase 1).
