Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits identical protein binding activity and signaling receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including natural killer cell activation; positive regulation of leukocyte chemotaxis; and regulation of interferon-gamma secretion. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane and phagocytic vesicle. Is expressed in liver lobe. Orthologous to human SLAMF1 (signaling lymphocytic activation molecule family member 1).
