Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein homodimerization activity and protein phosphatase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Rho protein signal transduction; endothelial cell morphogenesis; and positive regulation of tyrosine phosphorylation of STAT protein. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell-cell contact zone; external side of plasma membrane; and smooth muscle contractile fiber. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in coronary artery disease; coronary stenosis; myocardial infarction; neuroblastoma; and psoriatic arthritis. Orthologous to human PECAM1 (platelet and endothelial cell adhesion molecule 1).
