Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Involved in antigen processing and presentation of exogenous peptide antigen via MHC class II and response to interferon-gamma. Predicted to localize to the late endosome membrane and lysosomal membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); bacterial infectious disease (multiple); bone inflammation disease (multiple); cellulitis (multiple); and eye disease (multiple). Orthologous to several human genes including HLA-DRB5 (major histocompatibility complex, class II, DR beta 5).
