Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits fibronectin binding activity and insulin-like growth factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; negative regulation of skeletal muscle hypertrophy; and regulation of insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the insulin-like growth factor ternary complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; limb; lung; and metanephros. Orthologous to human IGFBP5 (insulin like growth factor binding protein 5).
