Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity and polymeric immunoglobulin receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of bitter taste; and immunoglobulin transcytosis in epithelial cells mediated by polymeric immunoglobulin receptor. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; extracellular space; and receptor complex. Orthologous to human PIGR (polymeric immunoglobulin receptor).
