This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein that contains epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like repeats. The encoded heterotrimeric protein may be involved in cell growth regulation and differentiation. A similar protein in rodents is involved in craniosynostosis. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
NEL-like protein 1; Nel-related protein 1; neural epidermal growth factor-like 1; Protein kinase C-binding protein NELL1
