Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds, in linear amides and serine-type endopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including bradykinin biosynthetic process; left ventricular cardiac muscle tissue morphogenesis; and tissue kallikrein-kinin cascade. Predicted to localize to extracellular space; protein-containing complex; and secretory granule. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy; chronic kidney disease; end stage renal disease; hypertension; and myocardial infarction. Orthologous to several human genes including KLK1 (kallikrein 1).
