C-type lectin domain family 7, member a

Gene Summary

Predicted to enable (1->3)-beta-D-glucan binding activity and pattern recognition receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including phagocytosis, recognition; positive regulation of cytokine production involved in inflammatory response; and response to fungus. Predicted to be active in cell surface. Is expressed in brain; gut; limb; musculature; and ventral grey horn. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in aspergillosis and chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis. Orthologous to human CLEC7A (C-type lectin domain containing 7A).
