Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have aspartic endopeptidase activity, intramembrane cleaving and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in membrane protein ectodomain proteolysis; membrane protein intracellular domain proteolysis; and regulation of immune response. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including bounding membrane of organelle; cytoskeleton; and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in embryo. Orthologous to human SPPL2B (signal peptide peptidase like 2B).
