Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits phosphotyrosine residue binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor; negative regulation of insulin receptor signaling pathway; and placenta development. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atopic dermatitis 4. Orthologous to human SOCS3 (suppressor of cytokine signaling 3).
