C1q and tumor necrosis factor related protein 5
This gene encodes a member of the a member of the C1q/tumor necrosis factor superfamily. The encoded protein may be a component of basement membranes and may play a role in cell adhesion. This gene is contained entirely within the 3' UTR of the membrane frizzled-related protein gene on chromosome 11q23 and both genes are expressed from a bicistronic transcript. Mutations in this gene have been associated with late-onset retinal degeneration.
