Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Orthologous to human PTPRD (protein tyrosine phosphatase receptor type D).
