Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits chemorepellent activity and fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of synapse assembly; proepicardium cell migration involved in pericardium morphogenesis; and synapse organization. Localizes to several cellular components, including axonal growth cone; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of postsynaptic membrane. Colocalizes with focal adhesion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; embryo ectoderm; embryo mesenchyme; and eye. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 21 with or without anosmia. Orthologous to human FLRT3 (fibronectin leucine rich transmembrane protein 3).
