Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable several functions, including heparin binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of endopeptidase activity and response to nutrient. Predicted to act upstream of or within blood coagulation and negative regulation of peptidase activity. Located in collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Is expressed in embryo; liver; neural tube; and notochord. Used to study antithrombin III deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in antithrombin III deficiency; disseminated intravascular coagulation; intermediate coronary syndrome; thrombosis; and toxic shock syndrome. Orthologous to human SERPINC1 (serpin family C member 1).
