Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable collagen binding activity involved in cell-matrix adhesion; collagen receptor activity; and integrin binding activity. Acts upstream of or within fibroblast migration and substrate-dependent cell migration. Predicted to be located in focal adhesion. Predicted to be part of integrin alpha11-beta1 complex. Predicted to be active in external side of plasma membrane. Is expressed in brain meninges; hindlimb digit mesenchyme; skeleton; tail paraxial mesenchyme; and thymus primordium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human ITGA11 (integrin subunit alpha 11).
