Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CLECL1 Gene
This gene encodes a type II transmembrane, C-type lectin-like protein that is highly expressed on dendritic and B cells. This protein may act as a T-cell costimulatory molecule that enhances interleukin-4 production, and maybe involved in the regulation of the immune response. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]
GeneCards Summary for CLECL1 Gene
CLECL1 (C-Type Lectin-Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is KLRF2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CLECL1 Gene
May function in mediating immune cell-cell interactions. May act as a T-cell costimulatory molecule, enhancing anti-CD3-induced proliferation. May play a role in the interaction of dendritic cells with T-cells and the cells of the adaptive immune response.
