From NCBI Gene:

This gene is a member of the immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily and is located in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class III region. The protein encoded by this gene is a glycosylated, plasma membrane-bound cell surface receptor, but soluble isoforms encoded by some transcript variants have been found in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi before being secreted. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

Inhibits platelet aggregation and activation by agonists such as ADP and collagen-related peptide. Appears to operate in a calcium-independent manner. Isoform B is a putative inhibitory receptor. Isoform A may be its activating counterpart.
