Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have fibronectin binding activity; insulin-like growth factor I binding activity; and insulin-like growth factor II binding activity. Predicted to be involved in regulation of insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to the collagen-containing extracellular matrix and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Is expressed in several structures, including blastocyst; compacted morula; genitourinary system; liver; and spleen. Orthologous to human IGFBP6 (insulin like growth factor binding protein 6).
