Summary
Predicted to enable MHC class I protein complex binding activity; activating MHC class Ib receptor activity; and protein antigen binding activity. Predicted to be involved in natural killer cell mediated immunity; positive regulation of natural killer cell degranulation; and stimulatory C-type lectin receptor signaling pathway. Located in external side of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human KLRC2 (killer cell lectin like receptor C2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Nov 2021]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) is missing one of the internal coding exons found in transcript variant 1. It maintains the same reading frame, and encodes a shorter isoform (2, also known as NKG2C2) lacking an internal protein segment compared to isoform 1.
