Is an ortholog of several human genes including F12 (coagulation factor XII); HGFAC (HGF activator); and PLAT (plasminogen activator, tissue type). Is predicted to have serine-type endopeptidase activity. Is involved in axon regeneration and positive regulation of MAPK cascade. Is expressed in ADLL and ADLR. Human ortholog(s) of this gene are implicated in several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease 1; Quebec platelet disorder; and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 39.
