Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.2.0)
Predicted to enable identical protein binding activity and protease binding activity. Acts upstream of or within epithelial cell development and extracellular matrix organization. Located in 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).
