Is predicted to encode a protein with the following domains: Transketolase, pyrimidine binding domain; Transketolase-like, pyrimidine-binding domain; and Thiamin diphosphate-binding fold. Is an ortholog of C. elegans bckd-1B
. In C. elegans, bckd-1B
is involved in positive regulation of fatty acid biosynthetic process and positive regulation of nematode larval development.
