Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits L-iduronidase activity. Involved in several processes, including glycosaminoglycan catabolic process; learning or memory; and skeletal system development. Localizes to the extracellular space. Used to study mucopolysaccharidosis I and otitis media. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Scheie syndrome and mucopolysaccharidosis I. Orthologous to human IDUA (alpha-L-iduronidase).
