Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity; peptidoglycan binding activity; and peptidoglycan receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including growth of symbiont in host; negative regulation of interferon-gamma production; and negative regulation of natural killer cell differentiation involved in immune response. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space. Is expressed in alimentary system; craniocervical region bone; genitourinary system; liver; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human PGLYRP1 (peptidoglycan recognition protein 1).
