FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This locus encodes a glycosylated transmembrane receptor. Its ligand, autocrine motility factor, is a tumor motility-stimulating protein secreted by tumor cells. The encoded receptor is also a member of the E3 ubiquitin ligase family of proteins. It catalyzes ubiquitination and endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation of specific proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012]
PHENOTYPE: Mice for a gene-trapped null allele are obese and develop liver steatosis and/or hepatic inflammation resembling nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Some mice develop liver tumors. Mice homozygous for another knock-out allele exhibit normal HMGCR turnover in mouse embryonic fibroblasts. [provided by MGI curators]
