Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits IgG binding activity and IgG receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity; phagocytosis; and positive regulation of hypersensitivity. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including arthritis (multiple); autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); dengue disease (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); and leukopenia (multiple). Orthologous to several human genes including FCGR2A (Fc fragment of IgG receptor IIa).
