Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable several functions, including phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase binding activity; phosphatidylserine binding activity; and virus receptor activity. Involved in negative regulation of apoptotic process and positive regulation of protein kinase B signaling. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including myeloid cell homeostasis; negative regulation of cytokine production; and nervous system development. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including actin cytoskeleton; cell surface; and host cell surface. Predicted to be part of receptor complex. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and visual system. Used to study autoimmune disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human AXL (AXL receptor tyrosine kinase).
