Sequence of this protein is as follows: WGKKAFSGYL GTDQSKWKAY DATHLVKSYP GSQLDILIDQ GKDDQFLLDG QLLPDNFIAA CTEKKIPVVF RLQEGYDHSY YFIATFITDH IRHHAKYLN
This gene encodes a serine hydrolase that belongs to the esterase D family. The encoded enzyme is active toward numerous substrates including O-acetylated sialic acids, and it may be involved in the recycling of sialic acids. This gene is used as a genetic marker for retinoblastoma and Wilson's disease.
