Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Predicted to enable 3alpha,7alpha,12alpha-trihydroxy-5beta-cholestanoyl-CoA 24-hydroxylase activity; anion binding activity; and palmitoyl-CoA oxidase activity. Predicted to be involved in lipid homeostasis and monocarboxylic acid metabolic process. Predicted to act upstream of or within lipid metabolic process. Predicted to be located in cytosol and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Predicted to be active in peroxisome. Is expressed in several structures, including heart ventricle; liver; metanephros; and trunk. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital bile acid synthesis defect 6. Orthologous to human ACOX2 (acyl-CoA oxidase 2).
