Involved in several processes, including mammary gland development; negative regulation of growth; and negative regulation of receptor signaling pathway via JAK-STAT. Predicted to localize to the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in endometrial cancer and ovarian carcinoma. Orthologous to human SOCS2 (suppressor of cytokine signaling 2).
