The protein encoded by this gene is a pregnancy-specific glycoprotein (PSG), one of several encoded by a cluster of similar genes on chromosome 19. This gene is a member of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family and may play a role in regulation of the innate immune system. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
