Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits diacyl lipopeptide binding activity and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to oxidised low-density lipoprotein particle stimulus; interleukin-1 beta secretion; and positive regulation of defense response. Localizes to the Toll-like receptor 2-Toll-like receptor 6 protein complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in aspergillosis; asthma; rhinitis; and tuberculosis. Is expressed in cerebral cortex and telencephalon. Orthologous to human TLR6 (toll like receptor 6).
