Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits G protein-coupled receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cornified envelope assembly; and galactosylceramide catabolic process. Localizes to the extracellular region and lysosome. Used to study Krabbe disease and metachromatic leukodystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atypical Gaucher's disease due to saposin c deficiency and combined saposin deficiency. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PSAP (prosaposin).
