Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Predicted to enable chitin binding activity; chitinase activity; and kinase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in chitin catabolic process; positive regulation of chemokine production; and production of molecular mediator involved in inflammatory response. Predicted to be located in extracellular space. Predicted to be active in extracellular region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma. Orthologous to human CHIA (chitinase acidic).
