Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity and serine-type endopeptidase activity. Involved in amelogenesis; extracellular matrix disassembly; and protein catabolic process. Predicted to localize to the secretory granule. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amelogenesis imperfecta type 2A1 and prostate cancer. Is expressed in epididymis; ileum; prostate gland; skin; and upper jaw incisor. Orthologous to human KLK4 (kallikrein related peptidase 4).
