Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have aspartic-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including embryonic morphogenesis; maintenance of epithelial cell apical/basal polarity; and positive regulation of BMP signaling pathway. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in focal segmental glomerulosclerosis 9. Orthologous to human CRB2 (crumbs cell polarity complex component 2).
