Previous Symbols for CCL3 Gene
This locus represents a small inducible cytokine. The encoded protein, also known as macrophage inflammatory protein 1 alpha, plays a role in inflammatory responses through binding to the receptors CCR1, CCR4 and CCR5. Polymorphisms at this locus may be associated with both resistance and susceptibility to infection by human immunodeficiency virus type 1.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
GeneCards Summary for CCL3 Gene
CCL3 (Chemokine (C-C Motif) Ligand 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCL3 include hiv-1 and malaria. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and TGF-Beta Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and chemokine activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCL3 Gene
Monokine with inflammatory and chemokinetic properties. Binds to CCR1, CCR4 and CCR5. One of the major HIV-suppressive factors produced by CD8+ T-cells. Recombinant MIP-1-alpha induces a dose-dependent inhibition of different strains of HIV-1, HIV-2, and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV).
