Gene: Aspn (asporin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aspn
Name: asporin
CRRD ID: 1558288
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of tooth mineralization and negative regulation of transforming growth factor beta receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to extracellular matrix. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; forelimb; integumental system; reproductive system; and skeleton. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ankylosing spondylitis; degenerative disc disease; and osteoarthritis. Orthologous to human ASPN (asporin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
