This gene encodes a racemase. The encoded enzymeinterconverts pristanoyl-CoA and C27-bile acylCoAs between their(R)- and (S)-stereoisomers. The conversion to the (S)-stereoisomersis necessary for degradation of these substrates by peroxisomalbeta-oxidation. Encoded proteins from this locus localize to bothmitochondria and peroxisomes. Mutations in this gene may beassociated with adult-onset sensorimotor neuropathy, pigmentaryretinopathy, and adrenomyeloneuropathy due to defects in bile acidsynthesis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have beendescribed.
