Predicted to have cytokine activity and frizzled binding activity. Involved in several processes, including circulatory system development; nervous system development; and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including collagen-containing extracellular matrix; extracellular space; and extrinsic component of external side of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast carcinoma; hepatocellular carcinoma; and urinary system cancer.
