Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have natural killer cell lectin-like receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including antigen processing and presentation of endogenous peptide antigen via MHC class I via ER pathway, TAP-independent; negative regulation of defense response to virus by host; and positive regulation of immune response. Localizes to the anchored component of external side of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human MICA (MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence A) and MICB (MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence B).
