Description
Predicted to have several functions, including heme binding activity; oxygen binding activity; and oxygen carrier activity. Involved in several processes, including response to activity; response to hypoxia; and vasculogenesis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute kidney failure. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; digestive system; epithelial cell; nervous system; and pharyngeal arch. Orthologous to human MB (myoglobin).
