From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane receptor for both human hepatitis A virus (HHAV) and TIMD4. The encoded protein may be involved in the moderation of asthma and allergic diseases. The reference genome represents an allele that retains a MTTVP amino acid segment that confers protection against atopy in HHAV seropositive individuals. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. Related pseudogenes have been identified on chromosomes 4, 12 and 19. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2015]
May play a role in T-helper cell development and the regulation of asthma and allergic diseases. Receptor for TIMD4 (By similarity). May play a role in kidney injury and repair.
(Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for hepatitis A virus (PubMed:9658108). Acts as a receptor for ebolavirus and marburg virus by binding exposed phosphatidyl-serine at the surface of virion membrane (PubMed:21536871). Acts as a receptor for Dengue virus by binding exposed phosphatidyl-serine at the surface of virion membrane (PubMed:23084921).
