FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the multiple epidermal growth factor-like domains protein family. The encoded protein plays a role in cell adhesion, motility and proliferation, and is a critical mediator of apoptotic cell phagocytosis as well as amyloid-beta peptide uptake in the brain. Expression of this gene may be associated with schizophrenia, and mutations in this gene are a cause of early-onset myopathy, areflexia, respiratory distress, and dysphagia (EMARDD) as well as congenital myopathy with minicores. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2012]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a targeted allele exhibit abnormal spacing of starburst amacrine cells and horizontal cells. Homozygotes for another targeted allele exhibit impaired phagocytosis of apoptotic cells by astrocytes. Mice heterozygous for this same allele exhibit mild disorganization of starburts amacrine cells. [provided by MGI curators]
