Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have metalloendopeptidase inhibitor activity and protease binding activity. Involved in Notch signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the extracellular matrix; extracellular space; and sarcomere. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in nephroblastoma. Is expressed in several structures, including brain ventricular layer; heart; ovary; skin; and ventral grey horn. Orthologous to human TIMP4 (TIMP metallopeptidase inhibitor 4).
