Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits phenylalanine 4-monooxygenase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular amino acid metabolic process; protein hydroxylation; and tetrahydrobiopterin metabolic process. Used to study phenylketonuria. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intellectual disability and phenylketonuria. Orthologous to human PAH (phenylalanine hydroxylase).
