Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chemokine activity. Involved in several processes, including angiogenesis involved in wound healing; leukocyte chemotaxis; and negative regulation of extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in absence of ligand. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell surface; neuronal cell body; and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Cor pulmonale and common cold. Orthologous to human CX3CL1 (C-X3-C motif chemokine ligand 1).
