Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have hormone activity and peptide hormone receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; osteoblast development; and surfactant homeostasis. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Used to study Albright's hereditary osteodystrophy and achondroplasia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in brachydactyly type E2. Orthologous to human PTHLH (parathyroid hormone like hormone).
