FunctionBinds EGFR, the EGF receptor, inducing EGFR autophosphorylation and the activation of downstream signaling pathways. May play a role in cell adhesion and migration. May function as a negative regulator of chondrocyte differentiation. In the olfactory epithelium, it may regulate glial cell migration, differentiation and the ability of glial cells to support neuronal neurite outgrowth.
Tissue specificityIn the eye, associated with photoreceptor outer and inner segment regions, the nerve fiber layer, outer nuclear layer and inner and outer plexiform layers of the retina.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in EFEMP1 are a cause of Doyne honeycomb retinal dystrophy (DHRD) [MIM:126600]; also known as malattia leventinese (MLVT) (ML). DHRD is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by yellow-white deposits known as drusen that accumulate beneath the retinal pigment epithelium.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the fibulin family. Contains 6 EGF-like domains.
Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Localizes to the lamina propria underneath the olfactory epithelium.
