Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables peptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including defense response to other organism; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to act upstream of or within several processes, including iron ion transmembrane transport; ossification; and proteolysis. Located in cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; epithelium; genitourinary system; gut; and liver. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in candidiasis; lung non-small cell carcinoma; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human LTF (lactotransferrin).
