The protein encoded by this gene is part of the T-cell receptor/CD3 complex (TCR/CD3 complex) and is involved in T-cell development and signal transduction. The encoded membrane protein represents the delta subunit of the CD3 complex, and along with four other CD3 subunits, binds either TCR alpha/beta or TCR gamma/delta to form the TCR/CD3 complex on the surface of T-cells. Defects in this gene are a cause of severe combined immunodeficiency autosomal recessive T-cell-negative/B-cell-positive/NK-cell-positive (SCIDBNK). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Other variants may also exist, but the full-length natures of their transcripts has yet to be defined.

GeneCards Summary for CD3D Gene
CD3D (CD3d Molecule) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CD3D include Immunodeficiency 19 and T-B+ Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Due To Cd3delta/Cd3epsilon/Cd3zeta. Among its related pathways are ICos-ICosL Pathway in T-Helper Cell and CTLA4 Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and transmembrane signaling receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CD3G.
