FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the Ig superfamily and encodes a cell surface sialoglycoprotein expressed by cytokine-activated endothelium. This type I membrane protein mediates leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion and signal transduction, and may play a role in the development of artherosclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Three alternatively spliced transcripts encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Most homozygous null mutants die by embryonic day 12.5 due to defective placenta and failure of chorion/allantois fusion, and heart developmental anomalies. Survivors are generally normal, but have high numbers of circulating blood mononuclear leukocytes. [provided by MGI curators]
