FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Kindlins are a small family of proteins that mediate protein-protein interactions involved in integrin activation and thereby have a role in cell adhesion, migration, differentiation, and proliferation. The protein encoded by this gene has a key role in the regulation of hemostasis and thrombosis. This protein may also help maintain the membrane skeleton of erythrocytes. Mutations in this gene cause the autosomal recessive leukocyte adhesion deficiency syndrome-III (LAD-III). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms.

PHENOTYPE: Disruption of this marker results in lethality in the first week after birth, abnormal erythropoiesis and platelet function, and severe hemorrhage. [provided by MGI curators]
