Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of collagen biosynthetic process; positive regulation of cytokine production; and positive regulation of glomerular mesangial cell proliferation. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in IgA glomerulonephritis and familial encephalopathy with neuroserpin inclusion bodies. Is expressed in olfactory epithelium. Orthologous to human SERPINB7 (serpin family B member 7).
