Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits 5'-nucleotidase activity. Involved in AMP catabolic process; adenosine biosynthetic process; and negative regulation of inflammatory response. Localizes to plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary arterial and articular multiple calcification syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and musculoskeletal system. Orthologous to human NT5E (5'-nucleotidase ecto).
