Summary
This gene encodes a secreted ligand of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. Ligands of this family bind various TGF-beta receptors leading to recruitment and activation of SMAD family transcription factors that regulate gene expression. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate each subunit of the disulfide-linked homodimer. The encoded protein may play a role in the generation of primordial germ cells, and has been shown to stimulate thermogenesis in brown adipose tissue. Male mice lacking a functional copy of this gene exhibit variable degrees of germ-cell deficiency. Homozygous knockout mice of both sexes exhibit impaired thermogenesis and reduced metabolic rate, resulting in weight gain. This gene may have arose from a gene duplication event and its gene duplicate is also present on chromosome 4. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
