Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have actin binding activity and calcidiol binding activity. Involved in vitamin D metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including axon; extracellular space; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); hepatocellular carcinoma; human immunodeficiency virus infectious disease; inflammatory bowel disease (multiple); and rheumatic fever. Is expressed in embryo; liver; and pancreas epithelium. Orthologous to human GC (GC vitamin D binding protein).
