Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits enzyme binding activity; glycosphingolipid binding activity; and integrin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including embryo implantation; negative regulation of cell adhesion; and neuron projection development. Localizes to laminin complex; nucleus; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; extraembryonic component; eye; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autistic disorder and lissencephaly. Orthologous to human LAMB1 (laminin subunit beta 1).
