MS4A1 B-lymphocyte-specific membrane protein that plays a role in the regulation of cellular calcium influx necessary for the development, differentiation, and activation of B-lymphocytes. Functions as a store-operated calcium (SOC) channel component promoting calcium influx after activation by the B-cell receptor/BCR. Belongs to the MS4A family. Expressed on B-cells. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
