Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits macrophage colony-stimulating factor receptor binding activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including mammary gland development; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and positive regulation of myeloid leukocyte differentiation. Localizes to the CSF1-CSF1R complex. Used to study osteopetrosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in interstitial cystitis. Orthologous to human CSF1 (colony stimulating factor 1).
