Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits choriogonadotropin hormone binding activity and choriogonadotropin hormone receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; regulation of cellular biosynthetic process; and reproductive structure development. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in early conceptus; medulla oblongata; medulla oblongata basal plate ventricular layer; oocyte; and testis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Leydig cell tumor; breast cancer; familial male-limited precocious puberty; and gonadal disease. Orthologous to human LHCGR (luteinizing hormone/choriogonadotropin receptor).
