-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 9C member 7; EC=1.1.1.-; AltName: Full=Orphan short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase; Short=SDR-O; AltName: Full=RDH-S;
FUNCTION: Displays weak conversion of all-trans-retinal to all- trans-retinol in the presence of NADH. Has apparently no steroid dehydrogenase activity.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Note=Granular distribution in the whole cell.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Highly expressed in liver.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q8NEX9
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
