Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including protein heterodimerization activity; transforming growth factor beta binding activity; and transforming growth factor beta receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of transmembrane receptor protein serine/threonine kinase signaling pathway; and regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to the extracellular matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Loeys-Dietz syndrome 5; arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy; and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia 1. Orthologous to human TGFB3 (transforming growth factor beta 3).
