Summary
Enables folic acid binding activity. Contributes to uroporphyrinogen-III synthase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to amine stimulus; response to platinum ion; and uroporphyrinogen III biosynthetic process. Located in cytosol. Used to study cutaneous porphyria. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cutaneous porphyria. Orthologous to human UROS (uroporphyrinogen III synthase).

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
