Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in embryonic digit morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to the integral component of membrane. Used to study acheiropody. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Laurin-Sandrow syndrome and acheiropody. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; immune system; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human LMBR1 (limb development membrane protein 1).
