Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable several functions, including Hsp90 protein binding activity; cytoskeletal protein binding activity; and guanyl ribonucleotide binding activity. Involved in cellular response to interferon-beta. Acts upstream of or within adhesion of symbiont to host; cellular response to lipopolysaccharide; and defense response to other organism. Located in cytoplasmic vesicle and symbiont-containing vacuole membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to several human genes including GBP2 (guanylate binding protein 2).
