Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have antigen binding activity; protein domain specific binding activity; and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including defense response to other organism; positive regulation of B cell activation; and protein kinase B signaling. Localizes to the CD40 receptor complex; external side of plasma membrane; and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Kawasaki disease; arthritis (multiple); autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); and hyperimmunoglobulin syndrome (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human CD40 (CD40 molecule).
