Summaries for CD247 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CD247 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is T-cell receptor zeta, which together with T-cell receptor alpha/beta and gamma/delta heterodimers, and with CD3-gamma, -delta and -epsilon, forms the T-cell receptor-CD3 complex. The zeta chain plays an important role in coupling antigen recognition to several intracellular signal-transduction pathways. Low expression of the antigen results in impaired immune response. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CD247 Gene

    Quaternary structure:
    • The TCR/CD3 complex of T-lymphocytes consists of either a TCR alpha/beta or TCR gamma/delta heterodimer coexpressed at the cell surface with the invariant subunits of CD3 labeled gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta, and eta. CD3-zeta forms either homodimers or heterodimers with CD3-eta. Interacts with SLA and SLA2. Interacts with DOCK2 and TRAT1. Interacts with HIV-1; this interaction up-regulates the expression of the Fas ligand (FASLG) at the cell surface. Interacts with HIV-2 Nef protein; this interaction induces down-regulation of cell surface TCR/CD3 complexes. Interacts with SHB. Interacts with ZAP70. Interacts (tyrosine phosphorylated) with SHC1 (via SH2 domain). Interacts with PTPRC.
