Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits diacyl lipopeptide binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to oxidised low-density lipoprotein particle stimulus; regulation of cytokine production; and toll-like receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to Toll-like receptor 2-Toll-like receptor 6 protein complex. Is expressed in cerebral cortex and telencephalon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in aspergillosis; asthma; rhinitis; and tuberculosis. Orthologous to human TLR6 (toll like receptor 6).
