Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Enables identical protein binding activity and signaling receptor activity. Involved in natural killer cell activation; positive regulation of activated T cell proliferation; and regulation of cytokine production. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including leukocyte chemotaxis involved in inflammatory response; positive regulation of leukocyte chemotaxis; and regulation of vesicle fusion. Located in external side of plasma membrane and phagocytic vesicle. Is expressed in liver lobe. Orthologous to human SLAMF1 (signaling lymphocytic activation molecule family member 1).
