Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds, in linear amides and serine-type endopeptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure and zymogen activation. Predicted to act upstream of or within proteolysis. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including acrosomal vesicle; apical part of cell; and extracellular space. Predicted to be part of protein-containing complex. Predicted to be active in 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).
