Gene Summary

Predicted to enable cytokine activity; erythropoietin receptor binding activity; and protein kinase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of ERK1 and ERK2 cascade; positive regulation of activated T cell proliferation; and response to dexamethasone. Located in cell body and extracellular space. Used to study retinal detachment and visual epilepsy. Biomarker of cholangiocarcinoma; eye disease (multiple); transient cerebral ischemia; and vascular dementia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetic angiopathy; familial erythrocytosis 5; ischemia (multiple); and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Orthologous to human EPO (erythropoietin). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
