FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a serine protease expressed exclusively in the thymus. It is thought to play a role in the alternative antigen presenting pathway used by cortical thymic epithelial cells during the positive selection of T cells. The gene is found in the large histone gene cluster on chromosome 6, near the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I region. A second transcript variant has been described, but its full length nature has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice are viable with no gross abnormalities and normal T cell development and activation. [provided by MGI curators]
