Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including enzyme binding activity; enzyme inhibitor activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including collagen fibril organization; fibrinolysis; and positive regulation of endocytosis. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schmidt-Lanterman incisure; basolateral plasma membrane; and myelin sheath adaxonal region. Predicted to colocalize with membrane raft. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal aorta; oral epithelium; primary palate; and yolk sac blood vessel. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteonecrosis. Orthologous to several human genes including ANXA2 (annexin A2).
