Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables protein homodimerization activity. Involved in central nervous system myelin formation; positive regulation of gastrulation; and regulation of nervous system development. Acts upstream of or within cardiac cell fate specification; cardiac muscle cell proliferation; and gastrulation with mouth forming second. Located in several cellular components, including neuron projection; nucleus; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; central nervous system; future brain; limb; and somite. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in essential tremor 5. Orthologous to human TENM4 (teneurin transmembrane protein 4).
