Predicted to enable cytokine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including astrocyte activation; negative regulation of amyloid-beta clearance; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within defense response to virus. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including dendrite; endoplasmic reticulum; and postsynaptic density. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cerebral cortex; cranium; female reproductive system; and liver. Used to study osteoporosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; hepatitis B; immunodeficiency 27A; immunodeficiency 27B; and tuberculosis. Orthologous to human IFNGR1 (interferon gamma receptor 1). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
