Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables collagen binding activity. Predicted to be involved in dorsal/ventral pattern formation and protein processing. Predicted to act upstream of or within cell differentiation and proteolysis. Predicted to be located in extracellular region. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; cardiovascular system; hepatic primordium; sclerotome condensation; and trachea mesenchyme. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atrial heart septal defect 6. Orthologous to human TLL1 (tolloid like 1).
