Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have metalloendopeptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in bone maturation; membrane protein intracellular domain proteolysis; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteogenesis imperfecta. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; liver; and lung. Orthologous to human MBTPS2 (membrane bound transcription factor peptidase, site 2).
