Enables chemokine activity. Acts upstream of or within leukocyte migration involved in inflammatory response. Predicted to be located in platelet alpha granule. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Is expressed in genitourinary system; gut; hemolymphoid system; and liver lobe. Orthologous to human PPBP (pro-platelet basic protein).

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.
