Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Predicted to enable cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity; protease binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including killing of cells of another organism; negative regulation of blood coagulation; and negative regulation of endopeptidase activity. Located in collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary angioedema and high molecular weight kininogen deficiency. Orthologous to human KNG1 (kininogen 1).
