Summaries for CLEC1B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CLEC1B Gene

  • Natural killer (NK) cells express multiple calcium-dependent (C-type) lectin-like receptors, such as CD94 (KLRD1; MIM 602894) and NKG2D (KLRC4; MIM 602893), that interact with major histocompatibility complex class I molecules and either inhibit or activate cytotoxicity and cytokine secretion. CLEC2 is a C-type lectin-like receptor expressed in myeloid cells and NK cells (Colonna et al., 2000 [PubMed 10671229]).[supplied by OMIM, Jan 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CLEC1B Gene

CLEC1B (C-Type Lectin Domain Family 1 Member B) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are G beta-gamma signalling through PI3Kgamma and Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+. GO annotations related to this gene include transmembrane signaling receptor activity and carbohydrate binding. An important paralog of this gene is CLEC12B.

    229 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    26596 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer. Interacts (via cytoplasmic domain) with RACK1; promotes CLEC1B ubiquitination and proteasome-mediated degradation. Interacts (dimer) with SYK (via SH2 domains).
    • Acts as a receptor for the platelet-aggregating snake venom protein rhodocytin. Rhodocytin binding leads to tyrosine phosphorylation and this promotes the binding of spleen tyrosine kinase (Syk) and initiation of downstream tyrosine phosphorylation events and activation of PLC-gamma-2 (PubMed:16174766). Acts as an attachment factor for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and facilitates its capture by platelets (PubMed:16940507).
