Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to contribute to interleukin-12 receptor binding activity; interleukin-23 binding activity; and interleukin-23 receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of defense response to virus by host; and regulation of cytokine production. Predicted to localize to 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 psoriasis (multiple). Orthologous to human IL23R (interleukin 23 receptor).
