Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable erythropoietin receptor activity and identical protein binding activity. Acts upstream of or within animal organ development and signal transduction. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm; external side of plasma membrane; and nuclear speck. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; egg cylinder; genitourinary system; germ layer; and heart and pericardium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in anemia; familial erythrocytosis 1; high grade glioma; polycythemia; and systemic lupus erythematosus. Orthologous to human EPOR (erythropoietin receptor).
