Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including enzyme binding activity; protein dimerization activity; and retinoic acid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including biphenyl catabolic process; cellular glucuronidation; and negative regulation of cellular glucuronidation. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum chaperone complex and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including bilirubin metabolic disorder (multiple); cholecystolithiasis; cholelithiasis; female reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and hepatitis B. Orthologous to human UGT1A1 (UDP glucuronosyltransferase family 1 member A1).
