Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits C-C chemokine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including leukocyte chemotaxis; myeloid cell differentiation; and negative regulation of innate immune response. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm; external side of plasma membrane; and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in several structures, including dorsal aorta; extraembryonic component; limb; liver; and urogenital ridge. Used to study Coronavirus infectious disease.
