Official Full Name
C-type lectin domain family 7, member A
This gene encodes a member of the C-type lectin/C-type lectin-like domain (CTL/CTLD) superfamily. The encoded;glycoprotein is a small type II membrane receptor with an extracellular C-type lectin-like domain fold and a;cytoplasmic domain with an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif. It functions as a pattern-recognition;receptor that recognizes a variety of beta-1,3-linked and beta-1,6-linked glucans from fungi and plants, and in this;way plays a role in innate immune response. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms,;have been characterized. This gene is closely linked to other CTL/CTLD superfamily members on chromosome 12p13 in the;natural killer gene complex region.
