MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes an enzyme which oxidizes carotenoids such as beta-carotene during the biosynthesis of vitamin A. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit increased spleen weight, decreased testis and seminal vesicle weight, and increased tissue lycopene and beta-carotene levels when fed diets containing tomato powder or lycopene. [provided by MGI curators]
