Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell-cell junction organization; negative regulation of cell population proliferation; and positive regulation of integrin-mediated signaling pathway. Localizes to the focal adhesion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2W. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; lower urinary tract; nervous system; and oocyte. Orthologous to human LIMS2 (LIM zinc finger domain containing 2).
