Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Involved in cellular response to retinoic acid; negative regulation of mitotic cell cycle; and positive regulation of neuron differentiation. Predicted to be located in extracellular region and mitochondrion. Predicted to be active in dendrite; endoplasmic reticulum; and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in central nervous system; olfactory epithelium; and submandibular gland primordium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction. Orthologous to human BRINP3 (BMP/retinoic acid inducible neural specific 3).
