Entrez Gene Summary for CCRL2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a chemokine receptor like protein, which is predicted to be a seven transmembrane protein and most closely related to CCR1. Chemokines and their receptors mediated signal transduction are critical for the recruitment of effector immune cells to the site of inflammation. This gene is expressed at high levels in primary neutrophils and primary monocytes, and is further upregulated on neutrophil activation and during monocyte to macrophage differentiation. The function of this gene is unknown. This gene is mapped to the region where the chemokine receptor gene cluster is located. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CCRL2 Gene

CCRL2 (Chemokine (C-C Motif) Receptor-Like 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include chemokine receptor activity and CCR chemokine receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is CCR7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCRL2 Gene

  • Receptor for CCL19 and chemerin/RARRES2. Does not appear to be a signaling receptor, but may have a role in modulating chemokine-triggered immune responses by capturing and internalizing CCL19 or by presenting RARRES2 ligand to CMKLR1, a functional signaling receptors. Plays a critical role for the development of Th2 responses

    • It was initially reported that CCRL2 responds functionally to CCL2, CCL5, CCL7, and CCL8 via intracellular calcium mobilization and transwell chemotaxis although no evidence for a direct ligand-receptor interaction was provided in this report. These results are now controversial, and other studies failed to confirm CCRL2 recognition and transwell chemotaxis of these chemokines or a series of other CC- and CXC-chemokines using CCRL2-transfected cells (PubMed:15188357).
