  • basic FUNCTION
  • involved in myotube formation and osteoblast differentiation and /or osteoblast activity in bone
  • playing a role in the processing of neuregulin
  • contribute to heart development
  • may play a significant role in tumor invasion that may be detrimental to patients survival
