Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits fibronectin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to C-X3-C chemokine binding activity. Involved in several processes, including chorio-allantoic fusion; face development; and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules. Localizes to the cell-cell junction and external side of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autism spectrum disorder and pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human ITGA4 (integrin subunit alpha 4).
