Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits cell adhesion molecule binding activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including heterophilic cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules; nervous system development; and regulation of nervous system development. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PTPRD (protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type D).
