Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CD177 Gene
This gene encodes a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked cell surface glycoprotein that plays a role in neutrophil activation. The protein can bind platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 and function in neutrophil transmigration. Mutations in this gene are associated with myeloproliferative diseases. Over-expression of this gene has been found in patients with polycythemia rubra vera. Autoantibodies against the protein may result in pulmonary transfusion reactions, and it may be involved in Wegener's granulomatosis. A related pseudogene, which is adjacent to this gene on chromosome 19, has been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
GeneCards Summary for CD177 Gene
CD177 (CD177 Molecule) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CD177 include polycythemia and essential thrombocythemia. Among its related pathways are Platelet activation, signaling and aggregation and Formation of Fibrin Clot (Clotting Cascade). An important paralog of this gene is LYPD4.
