Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits glutathione-disulfide reductase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell redox homeostasis; glutathione metabolic process; and spermatogenesis. Localizes to external side of plasma membrane. Is expressed in brain ventricular layer; gut; lung; metanephros; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and macular degeneration. Orthologous to human GSR (glutathione-disulfide reductase).
