Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits extracellular matrix binding activity. Involved in cell adhesion and extracellular matrix organization. Localizes to the extracellular matrix and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Reis-Bucklers corneal dystrophy; Thiel-Behnke corneal dystrophy; corneal dystrophy; epithelial basement membrane dystrophy; and granular corneal dystrophy type II. Orthologous to human TGFBI (transforming growth factor beta induced).
