Summary
Predicted to be an extracellular matrix structural constituent. Involved in Malpighian tubule development; basement membrane organization; and somatic muscle development. Located in basement membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adult CNS glial cell; circulatory system; embryonic/larval gut; extended germ band embryo; and ring gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in brain small vessel disease 1; myocardial infarction; and retinal arterial tortuosity. Orthologous to human COL4A1 (collagen type IV alpha 1 chain).
