Predicted to contribute to leukemia inhibitory factor receptor activity and oncostatin-M receptor activity. Involved in positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Predicted to localize to external side of plasma membrane and receptor complex. Used to study CAKUT. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteochondrodysplasia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and immune system. Orthologous to human LIFR (LIF receptor subunit alpha).
