Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to interleukin-12 receptor binding activity and interleukin-23 binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of cytokine production; and positive regulation of defense response to virus by host. Predicted to localize to the external side of plasma membrane and interleukin-23 receptor complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Behcet's disease; autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); bone inflammation disease (multiple); inflammatory bowel disease (multiple); and pulmonary hypertension. Orthologous to human IL23R (interleukin 23 receptor).
