Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits leukotriene receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium ion transport; chemotaxis; and inflammatory response to antigenic stimulus. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in allergic hypersensitivity disease; asthma; and rhinitis. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human CYSLTR1 (cysteinyl leukotriene receptor 1).
