Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables insulin-like growth factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in positive regulation of activated T cell proliferation and regulation of insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to act upstream of or within regulation of growth. Located in extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; early embryo; limb; metanephros; and reproductive system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human IGFBP2 (insulin like growth factor binding protein 2).
