Predicted to enable several functions, including heparin binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Predicted to be involved in response to nutrient. Predicted to act upstream of or within blood coagulation. Located in collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Is expressed in embryo; liver; neural tube; and notochord. Used to study antithrombin III deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in antithrombin III deficiency; disseminated intravascular coagulation; intermediate coronary syndrome; thrombosis; and toxic shock syndrome. Orthologous to human SERPINC1 (serpin family C member 1).
