Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits insulin-like growth factor binding activity and mannose binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including liver development; positive regulation by host of viral process; and response to retinoic acid. Localizes to the membrane and nuclear envelope lumen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in diabetes mellitus (multiple); hepatocellular carcinoma; in situ carcinoma (multiple); and nephroblastoma. Orthologous to human IGF2R (insulin like growth factor 2 receptor).
