Background: This gene encodes a transmembrane protein that functions as the receptor for interleukin-17C. The encoded protein signals to downstream components of the mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway. Activity of this protein is important in the immune response to bacterial pathogens. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene.
