Protein Coding Gene : Trem2 triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2

Primary Identifier  MGI:1913150 Organism  Mus musculus
Chromosome  17 NCBI Gene Number  83433
Mgi Type  protein coding gene
description  FUNCTION: Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)

Exhibits several functions, including lipopolysaccharide binding activity; lipoteichoic acid binding activity; and peptidoglycan binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; regulation of cytokine production; and response to bacterium. Localizes to integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and limb interdigital region. Used to study frontotemporal dementia. Orthologous to human TREM2 (triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2).
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele display enhanced cytokine production by macrophages in response to toll-like receptor agonists. Mice homozygous for a different knock-out allele show reduced microglial cell survival, proliferation and activation and cell cycle arrest at the G1/S checkpoint. [provided by MGI curators]
