Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables protein binding activity involved in heterotypic cell-cell adhesion; protein homodimerization activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in fusion of sperm to egg plasma membrane involved in single fertilization; heterotypic cell-cell adhesion; and sperm-egg recognition. Located in acrosomal membrane; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and plasma membrane. Part of protein complex involved in cell-cell adhesion. Orthologous to human IZUMO1 (izumo sperm-oocyte fusion 1).
