Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds, in linear amides and serine-type endopeptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure and zymogen activation. Predicted to localize to extracellular space; protein-containing complex; and secretory granule. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy; chronic kidney disease; end stage renal failure; hypertension; and myocardial infarction. Is expressed in early conceptus; embryo; salivary gland; testis; and ureter. Orthologous to several human genes including KLK1 (kallikrein 1).
