Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits calcium-dependent cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including blastocyst development; cellular response to amino acid stimulus; and myoblast fusion. Localizes to several cellular components, including chromatin; cytosol; and lysosome. Predicted to colocalize with membrane raft and mitochondrial intermembrane space. Is expressed in several structures, including hindbrain; lens epithelium; oral region epithelium; skin; and spinal cord floor plate. Orthologous to human CAPN2 (calpain 2).
