Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have erythropoietin receptor activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in animal organ development; embryo development; and signal transduction. Predicted to localize to 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; malignant glioma; polycythemia; and systemic lupus erythematosus. Orthologous to human EPOR (erythropoietin receptor).
