Description
Predicted to have signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in muscle attachment and myelination in peripheral nervous system. Predicted to localize to basement membrane. Used to study congenital merosin-deficient muscular dystrophy 1A and muscular dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy; congenital merosin-deficient muscular dystrophy 1A; muscular dystrophy; and myopia. Is expressed in adaxial cell; head; musculature system; nervous system; and otic vesicle. Orthologous to human LAMA2 (laminin subunit alpha 2).
