This gene product is the founding member of the evolutionarily conserved CAN family of proteins, which contain a domain resembling the CTCK motif found in a number of signaling molecules. These proteins are secreted, and act as BMP antagonists by binding to BMPs and preventing them from interacting with their receptors. They may thus play an important role during growth and development. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene.
