Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits BMP receptor activity and DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; chordate embryonic development; and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Localizes to the cell surface. Predicted to colocalize with the caveola. Used to study Ebstein anomaly; Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome; chromosome 10q23 deletion syndrome; juvenile polyposis syndrome; and osteoarthritis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intestinal disease and juvenile polyposis syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human BMPR1A (bone morphogenetic protein receptor type 1A).
