Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of blood coagulation; negative regulation of endopeptidase activity; and positive regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Localizes to collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in high molecular weight kininogen deficiency. Orthologous to human KNG1 (kininogen 1).
