Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chemorepellent activity and fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; proepicardium cell migration involved in pericardium morphogenesis; and synaptic membrane adhesion. Localizes to several cellular components, including the axonal growth cone; extracellular space; and integral component of postsynaptic membrane. Colocalizes with the focal adhesion. 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).
