Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits receptor tyrosine kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including ERBB2-ERBB3 signaling pathway; neurogenesis; and skeletal muscle hypertrophy. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum; and node of Ranvier. Used to study open-angle glaucoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in juvenile glaucoma; low tension glaucoma; ocular hypertension; open-angle glaucoma; and primary open angle glaucoma. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; genitourinary system; lung; and meninges. Orthologous to human MYOC (myocilin).
