Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in positive regulation of dense core granule biogenesis and protein localization to secretory granule. Predicted to localize to the chromaffin granule; extracellular space; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in IgA glomerulonephritis; end stage renal failure; hypertension; and prostate cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including common carotid artery; gut; male reproductive gland or organ; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CHGA (chromogranin A).
