Gene: Cd244a (CD244 molecule A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cd244a
Name: CD244 molecule A
Description: Predicted to have MHC class I protein binding activity. Involved in myeloid dendritic cell activation; natural killer cell activation involved in immune response; and positive regulation of lymphocyte proliferation. Localizes to external side of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in rheumatoid arthritis. Is expressed in thymus primordium. Orthologous to human CD244 (CD244 molecule); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; bisphenol A; buta-1,3-diene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
