Summaries for CXCL5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CXCL5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the CXC subfamily of chemokines. Chemokines, which recruit and activate leukocytes, are classified by function (inflammatory or homeostatic) or by structure. This protein is proposed to bind the G-protein coupled receptor chemokine (C-X-C motif) receptor 2 to recruit neutrophils, to promote angiogenesis and to remodel connective tissues. This protein is thought to play a role in cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

GeneCards Summary for CXCL5 Gene

CXCL5 (Chemokine (C-X-C Motif) Ligand 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CXCL5 include pulmonary sarcoidosis and nonspecific interstitial pneumonia. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include chemokine activity. An important paralog of this gene is PF4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CXCL5 Gene

  • Involved in neutrophil activation. In vitro, ENA-78(8-78) and ENA-78(9-78) show a threefold higher chemotactic activity for neutrophil granulocytes.
