DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=C-type lectin domain family 9 member A;
FUNCTION: Functions as an endocytic receptor on a small subset of myeloid cells specialized for the uptake and processing of material from dead cells. Recognizes filamentous form of actin in association with particular actin-binding domains of cytoskeletal proteins, including spectrin, exposed when cell membranes are damaged, and mediate the cross-presentation of dead-cell associated antigens in a Syk-dependent manner.
SUBUNIT: Homodimer.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: In peripheral blood highly restricted on the surface of BDCA31(+) dendritic cells and on a small subset of CD14(+) and CD16(-) monocytes.
PTM: N-glycosylated.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 C-type lectin domain.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q6UXN8
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
