Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits triose-phosphate isomerase activity. Involved in glucose metabolic process; glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate metabolic process; and multicellular organism development. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Used to study triosephosphate isomerase deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in carbohydrate metabolic disorder and triosephosphate isomerase deficiency. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TPI1 (triosephosphate isomerase 1).
