Official Full Name
Macaca fascicularis (Crab-eating macaque) (Cynomolgus monkey) left-right determination factor 1 DNA.
This gene encodes a member of the TGF-beta family of proteins. A similar secreted protein in mouse plays a role in left-right asymmetry determination of organ systems during development. Alternative processing of this protein can yield three different products. This gene is closely linked to both a related family member and a related pseudogene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
