Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits serine-type endopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of growth of symbiont in host; response to fungus; and response to lipopolysaccharide. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cyclic hematopoiesis; periodontitis; polycythemia vera; and severe congenital neutropenia. Orthologous to human ELANE (elastase, neutrophil expressed).
