Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to serine-type endopeptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including activation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity involved in apoptotic process; activation of plasma proteins involved in acute inflammatory response; and positive regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the extracellular space; plasma membrane; and serine-type peptidase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in disseminated intravascular coagulation; precursor B lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia; and von Willebrand's disease. Orthologous to human F3 (coagulation factor III, tissue factor).
