Exhibits Wnt-protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of cartilage development; and negative regulation of cell differentiation. Localizes to extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and limb. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lung non-small cell carcinoma and osteoarthritis. Orthologous to human FRZB (frizzled related protein).
