Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to have epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity and epidermal growth factor-activated receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including negative regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; peptidyl-tyrosine phosphorylation; and regulation of cell projection organization. Localizes to collagen-containing extracellular matrix and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo mesenchyme; skeleton; trunk; uterus; and vibrissa. Used to study Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy. Orthologous to human EFEMP1 (EGF containing fibulin extracellular matrix protein 1).
