Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have chemorepellent activity and semaphorin receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including T-helper 1 cell differentiation; negative regulation of angiogenesis; and positive regulation of synapse assembly. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cone-rod dystrophy 10 and retinitis pigmentosa 35. Is expressed in several structures, including blood vessel; central nervous system; primitive ventricle; retina; and ureteric trunk. Orthologous to human SEMA4A (semaphorin 4A).
