Is an ortholog of human DAG1 (dystroglycan 1). Is predicted to have laminin binding activity. Is involved in several processes, including axon extension involved in axon guidance; gonad morphogenesis; and inductive cell migration. Localizes to basal plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including ALM; PVP; e2
; gonad; and lumbar ganglion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene are implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2P and congenital muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy type A9.
