Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including enzyme binding activity; insulin-like growth factor binding activity; and purine ribonucleoside triphosphate binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell cycle; and positive regulation of macromolecule biosynthetic process. Localizes to the caveola. Predicted to colocalize with the nuclear envelope and nuclear lumen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Donohue syndrome; diabetes mellitus (multiple); familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia 5; and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human INSR (insulin receptor).
