Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to cell adhesion molecule binding activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including blood coagulation; negative regulation of apoptotic process; and positive regulation of secretion by cell. Localizes to the cell cortex and synapse. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiovascular system disease (multiple); congenital afibrinogenemia; and end stage renal failure. Orthologous to human FGB (fibrinogen beta chain).
