    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • putative receptor for purines coupled to G-proteins
  • functions as a potent negative regulator for oligodendrocyte myelination, at least in part, via inducing nuclear localization of differentiation inhibitors ID2 and 4 and opposing OLIG1 function
  • might mediate acute neuronal injury and late microgliosis after focal cerebral ischemia
  • required for initiating the differentiation of oligodendrocyte precursors but has to be down-regulated to allow cells to undergo terminal maturation
