Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have protease binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including collagen fibril organization; positive regulation of collagen biosynthetic process; and positive regulation of gene expression. Localizes to collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Is expressed in embryo; liver; liver lobe; and pancreas epithelium. Used to study alpha-2-plasmin inhibitor deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in COVID-19 and alpha-2-plasmin inhibitor deficiency. Orthologous to human SERPINF2 (serpin family F member 2).
