Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have collagen binding activity involved in cell-matrix adhesion and collagen receptor activity. Involved in substrate-dependent cell migration. Predicted to localize to the focal adhesion and integrin alpha11-beta1 complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Is expressed in brain meninges; hindlimb digit mesenchyme; skeleton; tail paraxial mesenchyme; and thymus primordium. Orthologous to human ITGA11 (integrin subunit alpha 11).
