Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have co-receptor binding activity; low-density lipoprotein particle receptor binding activity; and receptor antagonist activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic morphogenesis; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of nervous system development. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in anodontia. Orthologous to human DKK1 (dickkopf WNT signaling pathway inhibitor 1).
