Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; metalloendopeptidase activity; and protease binding activity. Involved in epithelial cell development and extracellular matrix organization. Localizes to interstitial matrix. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; hemolymphoid system gland; liver; lung; and testis. Used to study autosomal recessive isolated ectopia lentis 2 and lens disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive isolated ectopia lentis 2 and ectopia lentis with ectopia of pupil. Orthologous to human ADAMTSL4 (ADAMTS like 4).
