Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including induction of bacterial agglutination; opsonization; and regulation of phagocytosis. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; lung disease (multiple); respiratory syncytial virus infectious disease; and rhinitis. Is expressed in lung; otic capsule; and skeleton. Orthologous to human SFTPD (surfactant protein D).
