Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Involved in cellular response to retinoic acid; negative regulation of mitotic cell cycle; and positive regulation of neuron differentiation. Predicted to localize to dendrite; endoplasmic reticulum; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in oral squamous cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human BRINP2 (BMP/retinoic acid inducible neural specific 2).
