This gene encodes a member of the BMP (bone morphogenic protein) antagonist family. Like BMPs BMP antagonists contain cystine knots and typically form homo- and heterodimers. The CAN (cerberus and dan) subfamily of BMP antagonists to which this gene belongs is characterized by a C-terminal cystine knot with an eight-membered ring. The antagonistic effect of the secreted glycosylated protein encoded by this gene is likely due to its direct binding to BMP proteins. As an antagonist of BMP this gene may play a role in regulating organogenesis body patterning and tissue differentiation. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
