Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have enzyme inhibitor activity; lipid binding activity; and virus receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in complement activation, classical pathway and innate immune response. Predicted to localize to the apical plasma membrane; cell surface; and membrane raft. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in prostate cancer and protein-losing enteropathy. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; metanephros; olfactory epithelium; respiratory system; and trigeminal ganglion. Orthologous to human CD55 (CD55 molecule (Cromer blood group)).
