Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits extracellular matrix constituent conferring elasticity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of signal transduction; regulation of extracellular matrix organization; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to the extracellular matrix. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; heart and pericardium; and musculoskeletal system. Orthologous to human EMILIN1 (elastin microfibril interfacer 1).
