Gene: MEGF8 (multiple EGF like domains 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MEGF8
Name: multiple EGF like domains 8
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including craniofacial suture morphogenesis; gastrulation; and left/right pattern formation. Localizes to the extracellular exosome. Implicated in Carpenter syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
