Gene: MFAP4 (microfibril associated protein 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MFAP4
Name: microfibril associated protein 4
RGD ID: 1317270
Description: Predicted to have antigen binding activity; carbohydrate derivative binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in elastic fiber assembly; regulation of collagen metabolic process; and response to UV. Localizes to collagen-containing extracellular matrix; elastic fiber; and microfibril.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: microfibril-associated glycoprotein 4; microfibrillar associated protein 4; microfibrillar-associated protein 4
