Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits chemorepellent activity and fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including basement membrane organization; cell adhesion involved in heart morphogenesis; and regulation of nervous system development. Localizes to cell-cell junction; extracellular space; and integral component of plasma membrane. Colocalizes with focal adhesion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system epithelium; branchial arch; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FLRT2 (fibronectin leucine rich transmembrane protein 2).
