Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity and epidermal growth factor-activated receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including epidermal growth factor receptor signaling pathway; negative regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; and regulation of neurogenesis. Localizes to collagen-containing extracellular matrix and extracellular space. Used to study Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo mesenchyme; skeleton; trunk; uterus; and vibrissa. Orthologous to human EFEMP1 (EGF containing fibulin extracellular matrix protein 1).
