FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a secreted metalloproteinase which cleaves insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs). It is thought to be involved in local proliferative processes such as wound healing and bone remodeling. Low plasma level of this protein has been suggested as a biochemical marker for pregnancies with aneuploid fetuses. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mutants are smaller than normal with delayed ossification, but are otherwise normal and fertile. [provided by MGI curators]
