    text sensors of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) luminal Ca2+ changes and rapidly translocate into near plasma membrane (PM) junctions to activate Ca2+ entry (Wang 2009)
    basic FUNCTION
  • serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity
  • contributing to extracellular matrix stability by covalent linkage to hyaluronan (Hamm 2008)
  • candidate class II tumour suppressor gene that could be involved in tumour progression, invasion and metastasis (Veeck 2008)
