monocyte to macrophage differentiation associated

ENTREZID: 23531 | Type: NA | Map: 17q22

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This protein is expressed by in vitro differentiated macrophages but not freshly isolated monocytes. Although sequence analysis identifies seven potential transmembrane domains, this protein has little homology to G-protein receptors and it has not been positively identified as a receptor. A suggested alternative function is that of an ion channel protein in maturing macrophages. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
