Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have cytokine receptor activity. Involved in cytokine-mediated signaling pathway and regulation of cell growth. Predicted to localize to integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including bone marrow; cardiovascular system mesenchyme; dorsal aorta; genitourinary system; and yolk sac. Used to study pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. Orthologous to human CSF2RB (colony stimulating factor 2 receptor subunit beta).
