Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including adenylate cyclase-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of protein catabolic process; and regulation of protein localization. Predicted to localize to the neuron projection and perikaryon. Used to study primary pulmonary hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pulmonary sarcoidosis. Orthologous to human VIP (vasoactive intestinal peptide).
