Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including TAP complex binding activity; beta-2-microglobulin binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in cellular response to interferon-gamma and embryo implantation. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the Golgi medial cisterna; MHC class I protein complex; and endoplasmic reticulum. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; liver; and small intestine. Orthologous to human HLA-A (major histocompatibility complex, class I, A).
