Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits interleukin-10 receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in cytokine-mediated signaling pathway and positive regulation of receptor signaling pathway via JAK-STAT. Predicted to localize to the plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hepatitis B and inflammatory bowel disease 25. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human IL10RB (interleukin 10 receptor subunit beta).
