Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Exhibits 5'-nucleotidase activity. Involved in negative regulation of inflammatory response and nucleobase-containing small molecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to external side of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and musculoskeletal system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary arterial and articular multiple calcification syndrome. Orthologous to human NT5E (5'-nucleotidase ecto).
