Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Predicted to be involved in acute-phase response; hyaluronan metabolic process; and negative regulation of peptidase activity. Localizes to the cytoplasm and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hypercholesterolemia; intermediate coronary syndrome; and myocardial infarction. Orthologous to human ITIH4 (inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitor heavy chain 4).
