Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable calcium ion binding activity. Involved in establishment of planar polarity and neural tube closure. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including Rho protein signal transduction; apical protein localization; and morphogenesis of an epithelium. Located in membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including blastocyst; central nervous system; epithelium; primitive streak; and renal cortex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary lymphedema. Orthologous to human CELSR1 (cadherin EGF LAG seven-pass G-type receptor 1).
