Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits peptidase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium-independent cell-matrix adhesion; cell-substrate junction assembly; and positive regulation of axon extension. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane and basement membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Orthologous to human FN1 (fibronectin 1).
