Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits insulin-like growth factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gland development; positive regulation of cell cycle; and regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Localizes to the T-tubule and integral component of membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including IgA glomerulonephritis; dementia (multiple); kidney cancer (multiple); neurodegenerative disease (multiple); and toxic encephalopathy. Orthologous to human IGF1R (insulin like growth factor 1 receptor).
