Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chemorepellent activity; neuropilin binding activity; and semaphorin receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including dichotomous subdivision of terminal units involved in salivary gland branching; nervous system development; and ventral trunk neural crest cell migration. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 16 with or without anosmia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; metanephros; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SEMA3A (semaphorin 3A).
