Heterophilic interaction with PECAM1 on endothelial cells plays a role in neutrophil transendothelial migration in vitro (PubMed:17580308). However, seems to be dispensable for neutrophil recruitment due to bacterial infection in vivo (PubMed:23461681).

Highly expressed in normal bone marrow and weakly expressed in fetal liver (PubMed:10753836). During neutrophil differentiation, expression begins at the metamyelocyte stage and continues throughout the subsequent stages (at protein level) (PubMed:17244676, PubMed:18462208, PubMed:24926686). Expressed by a subset of mature neutrophils (at protein level) (PubMed:10753836, PubMed:28240246, PubMed:12377969, PubMed:18462208, PubMed:12675722, PubMed:17244676, PubMed:17580308, PubMed:21193407, PubMed:24926686, PubMed:28807980, PubMed:27227454). The percentage of neutrophils expressing CD177 varies across the population (PubMed:17244676, PubMed:27227454). Expressed in granulocytes of patients with polycythemia vera (PV) and with essential thrombocythemia (ET) (PubMed:10753836, PubMed:12377969).
Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor. Membrane raft; Lipid-anchor, GPI-like-anchor. Secreted. Cytoplasmic granule membrane. Cell projection, lamellipodium. Cell surface expression on neutrophils is increased upon TNF-alpha, fMLP or CXCL8/IL8-mediated stimulation (PubMed:17244676, PubMed:17580308). In neutrophils, stored predominantly in secondary and tertiary granules (PubMed:18462208). Can also be shedded from the cell membrane (PubMed:12239154, PubMed:18462208). Localizes to lamellar protrusions in spreading neutrophils (PubMed:28807980).
