Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable glutathione hydrolase activity; leukotriene-C(4) hydrolase; and peptidyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including cysteine biosynthetic process; glutathione biosynthetic process; and regulation of inflammatory response. Acts upstream of or within spermatogenesis. Located in vesicle. Is expressed in genitourinary system and yolk sac. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase deficiency. Orthologous to several human genes including GGT1 (gamma-glutamyltransferase 1).
