Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to lipopolysaccharide; positive regulation of T cell proliferation; and toll-like receptor 3 signaling pathway. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Used to study Guillain-Barre syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Henoch-Schoenlein purpura; asthma; autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); chronic lymphocytic leukemia; and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Orthologous to human CD86 (CD86 molecule).
