Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including myeloid cell activation involved in immune response; regulation of cytokine production; and regulation of lymphocyte activation. Acts upstream of or within osteoclast differentiation and regulation of osteoclast development. Located in cell surface. Is expressed in blood vessel; brain; central nervous system; corpus callosum; and embryo. Used to study Nasu-Hakola disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Nasu-Hakola disease. Orthologous to human TYROBP (transmembrane immune signaling adaptor TYROBP).
