Description
Is predicted to enable dopachrome isomerase activity. Involved in developmental pigmentation; generation of neurons; and melanin biosynthetic process from tyrosine. Acts upstream of or within melanin biosynthetic process. Predicted to be located in melanosome membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; female organism; immature eye; integument; and neural crest. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in oculocutaneous albinism. Orthologous to human DCT (dopachrome tautomerase).
