Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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; negative regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of nervous system development. Predicted to localize to extracellular space and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; embryo mesenchyme; eye; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in anodontia. Orthologous to human DKK1 (dickkopf WNT signaling pathway inhibitor 1).
