    97336 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterodimer of an alpha and a beta subunit. The beta subunit is common to the IL3, IL5 and GM-CSF receptors. The signaling GM-CSF receptor complex is a dodecamer of two head-to-head hexamers of two alpha, two beta, and two ligand subunits. Interacts with TMEM102; this interaction occurs preferentially in the absence of CSF2. Interacts with LYN (By similarity).

  • Pulmonary surfactant metabolism dysfunction 5 (SMDP5) [MIM:614370]: A rare lung disorder due to impaired surfactant homeostasis. It is characterized by alveolar filling with floccular material that stains positive using the periodic acid-Schiff method and is derived from surfactant phospholipids and protein components. Excessive lipoproteins accumulation in the alveoli results in severe respiratory distress. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21075760}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
