Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits integrin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell-cell adhesion mediated by integrin; pilomotor reflex; and positive regulation of cellular metabolic process. Localizes to the basement membrane and smooth muscle contractile fiber. Colocalizes with the integrin alpha8-beta1 complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human NPNT (nephronectin).
