Gene: PIGR (polymeric immunoglobulin receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PIGR
Name: polymeric immunoglobulin receptor
Description: Exhibits polymeric immunoglobulin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of bitter taste; and immunoglobulin transcytosis in epithelial cells mediated by polymeric immunoglobulin receptor. Localizes to the extracellular space; plasma membrane; and receptor complex.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: FLJ22667; hepatocellular carcinoma associated protein TB6; hepatocellular carcinoma-associated protein TB6; MGC125361; MGC125362; poly-Ig receptor
