Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits peptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; collagen fibril organization; and spermatogenesis. Localizes to the extracellular matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Is expressed in diencephalon mantle layer; embryo; thalamus mantle layer; and thalamus ventricular layer. Orthologous to human ADAMTS2 (ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 2).
